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.

I had got the tube to North Greenwich and a cable car over the river  (fantastic views)

My first time on the cable car, taking me to the Excel Centre, which is a a 10 minute walk from the Cable Car to the Excel Centre. Take your oyster card with you on this journey, you can use it the same way you can use it on Thames Ferry.

I didn’t find as much inspiration as I hoped for in 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 pulled 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. 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.

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.

Until next time, keep putting one foot in front of the other, you never know what you might find.

    • 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!
