Built in the 1850s, Hay's Wharf took deliveries from ships from all over the world and the area became known as the 'Larder of London'. The Hay's Wharf complex has been restored to its former glory and those who visit the Galleria today stand on the same spot where the tea clippers from India and China edged their way into the dock 150 years ago.
A focal point in the heart of the Galleria is David Kemp's magnificent 60ft kinetic sculpture, providing a hypnotic combination of moving parts, water jets and fountains. Traditional craft and market stalls decorate the walkways, sharing the spectacular surroundings with the permanent shops. Open every day, the stalls offer a variety of products from jewellery to paintings, ceramics to designer children's wear.
A variety of special events are held regularly in the Galleria and London attractions such as HMS Belfast, Tower Bridge, London Dungeon, Tate Modern, Vinopolis and the Tower of London are nearby.
