It is a special spot where people pay their respects to Ianto who was a character on the tv show Torchwood. Please be respectful.

As a Who and Torchwood fan I absolutely loved this place. The whole area is a fantastic place to visit and a trip to the Shrine was a must for me!

I know it's just a bit of fun, but it must be time for this to go now? There's a lot of history in this area, maybe an informative display on the port would be a nice idea. Sometimes when passing people ask me who...More
