This is one of those places that almost everyone we spoke to wasn't familiar with. If you are a fan of lighthouses it's a quick stop . Not to difficult to climb.

Absolute shambles! The wedding/venue planner hasn’t arrived on the day and her “replacement” doesn’t know anything about the wedding or the set up! Called them at least 6 times from the brides phone and at least twice from the catering team and needless to say...More

We are shocked to read this review. We run over 200 events a year at our 'dry hire' venues without issue. We are very sad to read this and feel we should clarify that as a 'dry hire' venue, we provide the space but not...More

We were in the ''Chain Store'' for my son's wedding reception. What a wonderful venue, it's just a big shed but it was wonderfully decorated for the big occasion. Later on at night when it got dark we had the fantastic views of the O2...More

Easy to get to by bus, and historical a very interesting site but looks really run down - seen better days, though lots of surrounding building sites may give hope for the future

First, everyone working there yesterday was so welcome which really made my first visit really nice. I caught the Destroyer boat from the O2 arena which was perfect as I would have struggled to get there otherwise. Just £2 each way. A light house, interesting...More

In the heart of Docklands where the River Lea joins the River Thames stands the only lighthouse in London. Built in the mid-1800s to test various lamps, it was also used by Michael Faraday for experiments. At the start of the last millennium, it became...More

As others have said this is an interesting place to visit, not only is it on the banks of the Thames but it's also directly opposite the Dome. The American Diner situated there used to be sited in the Liverpool Street area many years ago...More

Reaching the Wharf was quite an adventure, having travelled to Canning Town on the DLR and then wandered in and around concrete flyovers and building sites with their extensive pavement hoardings. An old-fashioned map would have been better than trying to navigate using Googlemaps which...More

We didn't really know this place existed but it was the last stage of our wall along the River Lea. Surprisingly interesting mixture of history and art with great view over to the O2 and back into London. Well worth investigating if in the area....More
