All you need to know about Bike Shed London 2016:
This year’s Bike Shed exhibition is being held in London’s stunning Tobacco Dock, again, about ten minutes walk from Tower Bridge.
Expect to see around 150 custom motorcycles from the new wave custom scene, plus art, photography, quality gear and apparel, hosted in comfy surroundings with quality food, a proper bar and coffee, plus we have a six-chair barbershop and three top-tier tattooists. You’ll want to stay all weekend.
As well seeing some of Europe’s best builders, and coolest brands, the event is also supported by the manufacturers who are also building some stunning custom machinery. Expect some very cool factory customs from Triumph, Yamaha and Harley-Davidson. TW Steel are also a sponsor, with a Yamaha Yardbuild by Numbnuts.

PLACES TO STAY – If you’re making a weekend of it and need accommodation, look HERE.
There is a multi-story bike park within the main building with the entrance on Pennington Street. (That’s different to last year). We have reserved this for motorcycles and it should take hundreds of bikes. Unfortunately you cannot leave vehicles parked overnight.
There is some very limited Bike Parking on the actual Dockside within the venue grounds – until 7pm only. (The entrance is off Wapping Lane). First come first served.
Dockside parking is not available for Friday evening’s Preview Event.
Some single yellow lines may offer free parking on Sat & Sun. Check local signage.
Tobacco Dock is surrounded by private residences. No dangerous or anti-social riding please.
The Multi-Story car park on Wapping Lane (that we used for bikes last year) can be used this year for Car Parking. We have no control of how they operate, but it looks like a decent space and reasonable price. Click HERE to pre-book a space with them to save on messing around with cash.
If you have questions about the event please DO NOT call or contact Tobacco Dock directly. Email [email protected] and we will sort you out – but before you do that, please check all the info on this page:
