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

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

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

Trinity Buoy Wharf is well worth a visit for its sheer mixture of madness! There is Faraday's workshop where he conducted experiments, the Long Player in the lighthouse, Joe's Diner (that was once at Covent Garden years ago, I think) which has good cheap eats,...More
