Cargo, Wapping Wharf, Bristol
A great example of placemaking
The retail world very much alive and kicking!
Cargo is part of Bristol’s glamourous new Wapping Wharf development. Whenever I visit my friend in Bristol, it is our go-to destination for lunch and a bit of shoping and is a great example of placemaking.
Cargo is a relatively large container park with approximately 35 local businesses operating out of it which has swiftly become not only a destination in its own right, but a wonderful community for the retailers who operate there, and a fantastic attraction to those looking for new homes in the development.
There is also yoga, massage and wellness, bubble tea, cider, craft beer plus a plethora of food, gifts and ethical clothing.
With regular events which see the retailers working closely alongside and supporting each other, Cargo really is a great example of the retail world being fantastically alive and kicking, just in a slightly different guise. The community spirit and fun atmosphere translates into the customer experience and makes Cargo a place you want to keep going back to.
