Thames Barrier at Woolwich
It might be way out east, but it is worth seeing. This is a feast of modern engineering and is responsible for keeping out the hostile English Channel's rising tides from London and the home counties. To properly experience the view, you might also want to catch the Woolwich ferry which will take you around the barrier itself. If you are lucky, you might even see it being raised at least once a day to ensure the parts work. Check this website for more details.
