Excel/ Docklands Trinity Buoy Wharf

 Excel/Docklands Trinity Buoy Wharf & London

What a day.

 

It was hot as well! A walk I never intended. The Thames again. A myriad of possibilities.Previous to this day I’d never heard of Trinity Buoy Wharf, but it’s always a pleasure to walk about ,get a bit lost & stumble upon somewhere interesting.

 

looking back towards the dome

 

I had got the tube to North Greenwich and a cable car over the river  (fantastic views) My first time on the cable car, & you can use your Oyster card, well worth it. I was heading to the Excel Centre,  a 10 minute walk from the Cable Car  to the Excel Centre.

I sat in on a couple of talks about Pinterest and dos and don’t to get your website recognised by Google.The lure of the sun and river took me back out, I  decided less is more. There is only so much information I need.  As I sat out on the steps eating my lunch I noted there was a bridge that you could walk over. I hadn’t known that was there, so decided to walk over it, it was Queen Victoria Dock Bridge. and took me along a very quiet residential area along side the river.

I then veered towards the industrial part not quite knowing where I was going but recognising some industrial bits from a previous walk.I eventually found a path along side a busy road that was directing me towards Canary Wharf & East India Docks, I slipped off the main road and found myself in this little nook.

This instrument picks up on the rhythms of the tide and chimes music, I would have loved to have been there at night on a full moon. They do have a cafe there where live music is played but you need to book well in advance as it is a tiny space.

To the left of it is an instrument that reads the moon tides.

The entrance to the Wharf has a varied display of street art .Sculpure & murals.

An interesting find, I must say. 

Walking along the Thames from Woolwich via Greenwich to Blackheath

As always , one foot in front of the other , and there you go. The river walks are my favourite walks. There is so much life and history.

    • Funnily enough, I used my camera phone, which I almost forgot I could use, but there were so many subjects, I just had to. Not too bad ey?

  1. Interesting blog. I’m doing the Thames Path walk (not in order and not all at the same time) and have walked a fair amount of the London section but not yet around Canary Wharf. Love the pictures. I also blog which includes my walks, along with a lot of other things. Planning my next walk!

Any thoughts ? please feel free to comment
