Gainsborough Wharf is a calm and peaceful urban oasis nestled among some of the most vibrant and exciting neighbourhoods in London. Some people refer to our stretch of the Regent’s Canal as the Haggerston Riviera.
We’re also incredibly well connected to the rest of the city and major transport hubs. If you’re travelling by canoe, foot or bicycle you’ll want Bridge no. 42, Regent’s Canal (opposite the Rosemary Branch pub).
Everyone else can use one of the following:
SatNav: Gainsborough Wharf, Wiltshire Row, N1 5EZ
Nearest Underground stations: Old Street and Angel (15min)
Nearest Overland station: Haggerston (10min)
The nearest bus stop: XD by Thomas Briggs (the Victoria factory you can see from the wharf) (1min). Catch the 21 (to Lewisham), 76 (to Waterloo) or 141 (to London Bridge) to go via Old Street, Moorgate, the City and onwards south of the river.
Moorgate: this is a really useful tube station as it’s on the Northern, Hammersmith & City, Circle and Metropolitan line. It’s a ten-minute bus ride on any of the buses above.
Highbury & Islington station: another really useful station as it’s on the Victoria line. Either walk there in around 20 mins or go to the XR bus stop on New North Road on the western edge of Shoreditch Park and catch the 271 (to Highgate Village).
