Thames Barrier United Kingdom

This is a good spot to shoot the Thames Barrier, a moveable flood barrier built in the 1980s to protect London from flooding due to storm surges. It's one of the less frequently visited spots in London's skyline because it's a little out of the way, but it's definitely worth a visit if you're into long exposure, city skyline photography etc. This shot is taken from the north side of the river, but the south side works equally well.
Thank you very much for your suggested change. We will check it as soon as possible and update this spot.

Travel information

I took the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) from Stratford to the nearest station which is Pontoon Dock. The spot is only a 5 minute walk from this station though a park. There are buses which service the area and I think parking would be relatively easy (especially on weekends) but the DLR is definitely the easiest route.
Thank you very much for your suggested change. We will check it as soon as possible and update this spot.
