The Faraday Effect
Open year round
Located by the Lighthouse
The Faraday Effect is one of London's smallest museums. Created by artists Ana Ospina and Cara Flowers and Fourth Wall Creations, The Faraday Effect is an immersive installation, a 'recreation' of Faraday's workshop decorated with antiques, found objects, and fishing ephemera, as well as sound recordings, explanatory notes and historic documents.
What's it doing in Trinity Buoy Wharf? The site has a connection to everyone's favourite Victorian electromagnetist, as Faraday worked as Scientific Advisor to Trinity House for nearly 30 years from his appointment in 1836. He conducted many tests in electric lighting for lighthouses, using the Experimental Lighthouse positioned at Trinity Buoy Wharf in the 1850s.
Due to the confined nature of the structure, there's no step free access to The Faraday Effect installation.
