Pennington Street Warehouse is a grade II listed brick built warehouse and vault situated east of St Katharine Docks.
The vaults date from the early 19th century and served the Western Dock (London Docks) for storing wine and imported goods.
Referred to as ‘one of London’s most majestic ranges of cellarage… The interconnecting sections linked the warehouse with the rest of the London Docks, covering an area of over 20 acres.
Merchants would often invite customers, friends and family to sample the product, tasting permits were given out and the liquor was tasted freely within the cathedral-like surroundings.
Today, only four acres of vaults survive.
