With their distinctive outline the Thames Barrier is one of the most iconic buildings on the river (or in it).

So if you’re out that way (south east London, with an emphasis on the east) you should consider visiting the information centre (£3.50).

It’s a small venue so if there are a lot of people then the conflicting audio from the different videos can be a little off putting.

That aside, it’s not bad, you learn about the river and the flood defences for London.

If the centre is shut walk on a little to a cafe in the learning centre where you can get admission.

So do you make the trip out for the centre? No, but if you’re wandering along the river on a nice day then stop by and check it out.
