Summer Holidays at Trinity Buoy Wharf
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
Young visitors to Trinity Buoy Wharf this summer will receive a free kids' guide to help them discover the area's history and culture. The drawing books, which are suitable for ages 5-12, come with free crayons and a voucher for a free kid's meal from Fat Boy's Diner and Bow Creek Café (valid when paying for one adult meal). There are also daily parkour youth camps for ages seven to 15 (£25 per day) – contact Parkour Generations for details.
Trinity Buoy Wharf is the Thameside site where all the buoys and markers for the River Thames were once made and repaired. The site was rescued from dereliction and now its lighthouse (the only one in the capital) overlooks a growing creative community. Preserving the Grade II-listed warehouses, the developers built the brightly coloured Container City, creating artists' studios, offices and a riverside café out of recycled shipping containers. The venue is open Mon-Fri, Sun 9am-5pm, Sat 10am-5pm.
