Paws on the Wharf will be using NaviLens technology to support people with sight loss to experience the trail.

NaviLens is a new and exciting accessibility technology. These colourful codes were created to help people who are blind or partially sighted access important information about their surroundings. NaviLens codes are unique in that they can be detected from much further away, at extreme angles and much quicker than normal codes. Simply download the NaviLens App for free, scan the codes and enjoy.

It is a great honour to be able to work alongside Guide Dogs on their Paws on the Wharf art trail. The world of arts and culture is so very close to NaviLens' heart and having the opportunity to be part of something so groundbreaking makes us incredibly proud. We are great admirers of what Guide Dogs have achieved with this and are so grateful to be a part of something so amazing.

Using NaviLens on the trail

Our sculptures will be located within five Areas throughout Canary Wharf. These locations are detailed on the trail map, in the braille and large format guides and on the 'Visiting the trail' web page.

Each sculpture has a NaviLens code on the sculpture plinth.

Each Area starting location is by the first sculpture within that Area. You'll be able to use the NaviLens App to scan the code on the first sculpture and listen to the information about the design and the artist. NaviLens will then provide directional information for the next sculpture within the Area, which will then have the next NaviLens code to scan.

Get the App

To get this free technology, you can download the NaviLens App for free at the Google Play and Apple App Store. 

You can also scan the QR codes displayed on the screen below using your mobile camera to download either NaviLens App from the Apple App Store or Google Play store.

We have made every effort to ensure the trail is as safe and accessible as possible. However, being an outdoor trail in a public space and being open to the elements, participants should take care accordingly when moving around the trail.
