United Kingdom Thames Barrier
- Please to see the geo position & weather for this photo spot
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.

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.
