The long building maintains its original features of traditional brickwork and exposed beams, built right alongside the canal with rowing boats floating in its garden of water.

During the week long festival the repurposed dock building will not only feature pieces of furniture and design in its showrooms, but visitors can also see the range of Etch cut brass parts being assembled, as well as a whole showcase of diverse designers products.

Brompton Bikes are one of the many brands on show in the space, and even limited edition Tom Dixon copper-plated bikes can be seen being assembled on-site. Visitors are even welcome to take them for a spin!

Complete with a restaurant and outdoor terrace, the Dock also has a little garden area featuring home-grown tomatoes to compliment the wholesome feel of canal-side dining.
