|The Studios are located in Wapping on the North Side of the Thames in the shadow of Tower Bridge and are an ideal central location base for any photography or film shoot.
Wapping is an East End community stooped in history centered around the old London docks.
Its cobbled streets boast three of the most famous and charismatic pubs in London with riverside beer gardens, The Prospect of Whitby, The Captain Kidd and the Town Of Ramsgate, all of which welcome film and photography crews.
There are four parks in Wapping, two with vintage bandstands and two on the river itself.
There are narrow Victorian alley ways leading down to the once heavily used river steps all along the Wapping riverside.
Wapping High Street is off the main highway and is not a through route. The narrow cobbled street is flanked with converted warehouses, and punctuated with old loading cranes and a steel loading bridge.
St Katharines Dock and marina next to Tower Bridge is the most beautiful of all the central London marinas. The old dock walls and counterweighted footbridges contrast with the elegant Yachts and modern motor cruisers.
There is a series of ornamental canals with mini waterfalls and steps running adjacent to the river that were made famous by the James Bond speedboat stunts in ‘The World is Not Enough’.
Alongside these canals is the old hydraulic pumping station now known as The Wapping Project. This building built in 1890, houses huge machinery and dials that used to control the hydraulic power that was sent to London industry in the last century. The equipment is still on site and sits as a talking point for the ala Carte restaurant situated inside.
There is location vehicle parking, catering and equipment hire and shuttle service available from the studios.
