Container Shipyard

These container boxes are the original home of Boxpark… Barking is trendier than you might think!

This location provides the perfect backdrop for an industrial feel with a bounty of colourful containers, workshops and access to the Barking’s Fresh Wharf Industrial Estate, which backs onto the Thames.  The huge container forklift can also be hired with trained driver and storage for productions is also available on request.

Transport links

The Container Shipyard is 2.6 miles from Upney underground station (District line) and 8 minutes (1.9 miles) from the A13, so has good transport links to M25 and M11.

Parking availability

There is a large unit base located very close by – have a chat with our location managers and they’ll tell you more.
