This historic Grade II listed structure has been sympathetically restored to create a distinctive and elegant building with a range of eclectic shops, restaurants, bars and a pub boasting views of the River Thames and Tower Bridge.
With a history dating back over four centuries, Hay’s Galleria was a collection of tea and produce warehouses surrounding a wharf, which has since been covered by a floor to create this extraordinary, atmospheric shopping and dining experience. The roof, a spectacular glass and steel barrel-vaulted replica, is reminiscent of the Victorian railway termini, was built to create a galleria with a central focus of a fountain with a 60ft moving bronze sculpture of a ship, called ‘The Navigators’ by sculptor David Kemp.
The Larder of London
During the 19th century, the wharf was one of the chief delivery points for ships bringing tea to the Pool of London and 80% of the dry produce imported to London passed through the wharf, which gained the nickname – the Larder of London.
