The Thames Flood Barrier is one of the largest movable flood defences in the world. Since its completion in 1986 the barrier has been closed 596 times (accurate as of June 2019). 184 of these closures were to defend London from flooding. 97 closures were to protect against tidal flooding & 87 closures were to protect against tidal/fluvial flooding.
The Thames Barrier Information Centre is an exhibition demonstrating how the barrier was designed, built & operates. The Information Centre has recently re-opened following an extensive refurbishment. The refurbishment included improved outdoor seating & an additional conference room for groups.
