3 taprooms, 2.5 miles
Beautiful scenery meets beautiful beers. If you’ve not been to Deptford & Greenwich before you don’t know what you’re missing. On this taproom trail, you’ll experience stunning views of the river Thames, explore the gorgeous villages of Deptford & Greenwich, as well as drink some mighty fine beers! Those who have already completed the Bermondsey Taproom Trail will be thrilled to see another Brew By Numbers venue on this trail. At Brew By Numbers – Morden Wharf you can expect to find tank fresh beers, regular food trucks, events, and incredible views across the Thames. After BBNO we recommend a lovely Thameside walk where you can enjoy the views over the river and build up an appetite for what’s coming up. You’ll find yourself walking through Greenwich where you can find plenty of things to do, such as the world-renowned Cutty Sark museum, Greenwich Market, and of course, Greenwich Park. Once you’re done in Greenwich, hop over to charming Deptford. Villages Brewery make fresh, delicious, vegan-friendly beer in the heart of Deptford. Finally, we get to the epic SALT – Deptford where they perfectly pair a variety of award-winning beers from their core range, specials, and guest beers with delicious wood-fired pizza. Of course, if you don’t fancy pizza then Deptford has a variety of food options, and good transport links mean this is a great place to finish your evening.
We recommend starting at BBNO Morden Wharf so you can really soak up those views of the Thames and build up an appetite on the 2-mile walk towards Greenwich and Deptford. If you don’t fancy walking, you can easily get a train from nearby stations Westcombe Park or Maze Hill to Deptford Station.
Brew By Numbers – Morden Wharf is a little isolated from public transport. You will have a number of options depending on which works best for you. Most people will probably opt to walk from North Greenwich underground, which is approximately a 15-minute walk to the brewery. From North Greenwich station, head south on Millenium Way until you get to Boord Street where you’ll need to take a right. On Boord Street, go over the bridge over the A102/Blackwall Tunnel approach and you’ll find yourself on Tunnel Avenue. Head south on Tunnel Avenue and take the first right down Morden Wharf Road. BBNO Morden Wharf can be found at the back of the industrial park, just follow the signs. Once you’ve enjoyed the views and consumed enough BBNO beer to sustain you for the 2-mile walk ahead, head out the back of the brewery and head south on the river path ‘Olympian Way’. Continue to walk alongside the river, the path will be broken up a bit by some other small roads, just stay near the water and you’ll find the path again, which will now be called Thames Path. Assuming you’re making a beeline to Villages and not wanting to enjoy the sites in Greenwich, continue on this path until you hit the end where you’ll find yourself on Horseferry Place. Continue South until you hit the A200 where you’ll need to turn right and head West crossing over Deptford Creek. Continue on the A200 until you find the A2209/Deptford Chruch Street. Head South again on the A2209 until you go under a small rail bridge, Resolution Way where you’ll subsequently find Villages Brewery, is immediately after the bridge. After Villages, you’ll take a very short walk to SALT Deptford, to do this, continue down Resolution Way and onto Deptford High Street. Turn left down Deptford High Street and you’ll soon find SALT Deptford, which is just off Carriage Way.
