Container City

Tucked away on a former buoy manufacturing site opposite the Millennium Dome lies Trinity Buoy Wharf, a “site for artistic and cultural activities”. On a cold but bright Saturday afternoon I took a short DLR train trip down there to take a look around. To my surprise the place was dead – not a living soul in sight bar the odd seagull – however this didn’t stop me having a look around and taking a few photos 🙂

Growth & Power

The area boasts London’s only lighthouse, plenty of fresh air and possibly most interestingly Container City – two unique looking buildings made of re-purposed shipping containers (very eco-friendly etc). Whilst it doesn’t take long to look around it is well worth a visit if you’re nearby.
