Map of London Wapping tube station
Wapping is where News International moved to when they decided it was too expensive to keep printing newspapers in Fleet Street, and the name became associated with the pitched battles between police, sacked printworkers and News International's security staff. However, this was a few years ago now, and the printworkers, sadly defeated, moved on who knows where. News International's print works became known as "Fortress Wapping".
The area is a strange mixture of new light industrial, council housing, and along the riverfront, old warehouses converted into expensive flats.
