Our return to Trinity Buoy Wharf offers the rare opportunity  to draw on the northern bank of the Thames. The fabulous views across the river towards Greenwich take in the Millenium Dome, the City and Canary Wharf.

The vibe at Trinity Buoy creeps up slowly on you the more you draw – the layered histories of the Michael Faraday workshop – birthplace of the electric motor – remain here above the Chain and Buoy store, alongside London’s only lighthouse. There is no better place to practice perspective drawing than Container City –  the studio and office complex designed from re-cycled shipping containers, and the new Clipper House, recycled form the 2012 Olympic Park Broadcasting Studios.

Eat in Fat Boy’s Diner – the authentic chromium coach diner serving 1940s American classic food -Come and enjoy some time where merchant and naval seamen, dockers and doxies, pirates, privateers and all manner of salty seadogs have walked and worked before us.
