Came here on an organised tour, to where the Trinity House buoys were assembled and serviced. The lighthouse, is quite short, erected by Trinity House initially to facilitate experiments by Michael Faraday, later to train lighthouse keepers - an occupation now fading away into history. To be honest the occupiers could do better to educate visitors to the site's past... More

Visited this place a bit off the cuff. A really interesting little place tucked away. Doesn't take long to wander round, but nevertheless a really quirky interesting place. Worth it just to see the light house and light ship. I'd love the chance to go on the light ship. There was a wedding on when we went, so didn't get... More

We walked part of the way to the Wharf along the canal and it was great to reach the lighthouse and the delightful little arts centre. There's also Longplayer to check out which is an installation playing a piece of music (from singing bowls) which is set to run for 1000 years. There are some interesting sculptures and artwork dotted... More

This is a fascinating place. The location is interesting, offering glimpses of industry past and present in this part of London, as well as a panoramic view of the Thames - with O2 opposite, Canary Wharf upstream and the cable car downstream. We came especially to see Longplayer, a musical composition lasting 1,000 years located in an old lighthouse (see... More

I came to see the Longplayer from the lighthouse. Mystic place, I’ve walked for a few hours but the trip was worth the effort ! Very relaxing, and mystic melody… A Lighthouse you must visit if you’re looking for not common things !

Quite an interesting place although there was an "event" going on outside so we were a bit restricted to where we could walk.

All too often I've driven past the access road to Trinity Buoy Wharf, and considering I live only 5 minutes away, and the fact it's taken nearly 10 years to pay it a visit is disgraceful. On the basis of today's visit, it will definitely be on my regular itinerary for a bacon butty and a decent cup of coffee.... More

What a unique area. This is based along the Thames with a overview of the Millennium Dome. There is so many sculptures to be found here along with a old Lighthouse and many unique shops/schools from craft to a tea type shop. There are also sculptures dotted around this place all very unusual. Worth a visit for the quirkiness.
