Sports Facilities


Wapping’s riverside, open spaces and ornamental canal provide safe and quiet routes for local runners while our ward boasts nine Boris Bike terminals for the benefit of cyclists. Meanwhile, every April, Wapping residents line the Highway to cheer on a seemingly endless parade of the exhausted as the London Marathon hits town.

In the centre of our ward stands the John Orwell Sports Centre providing gym, indoor court and outdoor pitch facilities to local people. To the east, the Shadwell Basin Outdoor Activity Centre offers people of all ages the chance to engage in watersports, climbing and mountain biking while the tennis courts by the King Edward Memorial Park are open to everyone in the borough.
