Trinity Buoy Wharf is one of the hidden treasures of the Isle of Dogs, although it has an intriguing history it is also the location of an Art quarter which offers plenty of entertainment all through the year.
I have often featured the Street Art and sculptures that are dotted around the location, however few people might realise that Trinity Buoy Wharf often puts on shows.
It has just been announced that there will be a Shakespeare’s Comedies Season between the

If you cannot make it to the shows, a trip to Trinity Buoy Wharf is full of surprises. It is the scene of the London’s only Lighthouse, an original American Diner and number of installations including Yoshie Jujioka’s Metal Sculpture Kit, The Ascenda , and the Time and Tide Bell.
A recent addition to the Container City at Trinity Buoy Wharf has just opened, Clipper House which was recycled from the 2012 Olympic Broadcasting Studios at Stratford Olympic Park provides a number of offices, workspaces and art studios overlooking the River Thames.
