Visiting Merchant Square
We are excited to welcome you back to Merchant Square. Your safety is our number one priority and we’ve been working hard to make sure that Merchant Square is as safe as possible for everyone that lives, works or visits here. Our new safety measures in place can be seen below and for any questions, please feel free to get in touch by email.
From June 1st we opened all our seating areas on the estate which are marked with foot stencils to ensure everyone practices social distancing.
From June 15th all our green spaces including the Floating Pocket Park are back open to enjoy.
We have placed new signage and ground markings to help keep everyone a safe distance in seating areas or when walking around. Our Floating Pocket Park capacity has also been reduced to ensure that social distancing can be respected whilst enjoying the space. Our team in green will be happy to assist with any questions you may have on new safety measures and guidance.
We advise everyone to keep washing their hands or hand sanitise as per government guidance. Our team continue to keep Merchant Square clean with extra attention to any surfaces such as handrails, bike racks and benches.
We encourage travel to Merchant Square by foot or bike and have introduced new travel maps (see images below) to help you with your journey. There are three locations around Merchant Square with Santander bike hire and we have also added additional bike racks beside 5 Merchant Square at North Wharf Road.
Other bike racks can be seen located beside The Point on North Wharf Road, beside GoBoat and in front of 9 Harbet Road.

All our on-site restaurants are open and you can also enjoy takeaway food from our food trucks in West Plaza. You can find a list of our restaurants here, including opening hours and booking information.
