In 1998, Trinity Buoy Wharf was an empty, derelict site. Now it is a thriving centre for the arts and creative industries with a rare community of over 350 like minded people enjoying the unique riverside location.

Free from overdevelopment, the site's fasinating history can still be seen in the buildings, installations and residents such as the Lightships LV93 and LV95 that are moored here.

With careful regeneration, Trinity Buoy Wharf has kept its character whilst offering amenities such as studio and gallery space, a pier, boat club, school, rehearsal rooms and two dining options in the form of Driftwood Cafe and Fat Boys all American diner and 3 of the hugely sustainable Container City buildings.

  • Trinity Buoy Wharf - the only tower in London, has now been deactivated. Here is now the first studio in London, container studio / creative quarter. Inside (or an open-end?!) Some of the devices and exhibitions, but I didn't see the show on the day, probably because of the day and the no living. There's nothing really cool here, it's a little cold, but I've had it. This place is only a place to come, because the geographical location is a bit of a barrier, ordinary visitors will not come specially. Unless you're interested in the history and history here, don't you think it's good. Or it's better to have a better day and a little bit more active, and the photo shoot will be better than it is.

  • Sensational. Go. Several good things to see. Hard to find but easy to park at the weekend. Longplayer exceptional. Good cafe plus an American Diner ( not visited ). Terrific river views. Went in a sunny blue sky day...reckon it could be bleak otherwise. A gem!!!
  • Lots of arty stuff see and explore outside (mostly). Nice views over to the O2. Access to coffee meals at the café or grab a burger at the American diner. Be prepared for I've cold winds especially during winter though.
