The Trinity Buoy Wharf Jubilee Pier was built to commemorate the Queen’s Golden Jubilee in 2001.

Located on the river Thames opposite the O2 Arena, the pier was a valuable education point for local schools, so soon after it was built Container City added two ‘floating’ classrooms to the existing pontoon.

In 2008 Thames Clippers developed the pontoon into one of London’s longest  piers where the former classrooms are now used as mess rooms  for the crews.
