Butler's Wharf, Southwark

Butler's Wharf is an English historic building on the south bank of the River Thames, now housing luxury flats and restaurants. Originally a chocolate biscuit factory, Butler's Wharf was built between 1865-73 as a shipping wharf and warehouse complex, accommodating goods unloaded from ships using the port of London. It contained what was reputedly the largest tea warehouse in the world. During the 20th century, Butler's Wharf and other warehouses in the area fell into disuse. Since the 1980s, Butler's Wharf has been transformed from a derelict site into luxury flats, with restaurants and shops on the ground floor.
