What we can do for you

School Visits and Field Trips:

  • We run an exciting programme of curriculum-linked activities for schools and other education groups, using the river as an outdoor classroom. We offer a fantastic range of activities at venues along the tidal Thames from Isleworth to Greenwich. Download our education brochure here!

Foreshore Exploration for Adults and Families:

  • We run events for adults and families wanting to discover the archaeology or the ecology of the river with an expert guide.


  • We offer in-service training ‘away days’ for primary and secondary schools which include classroom based and river-related outdoor learning activities to inspire your staff.

As part of our 30 years celebration why not make a donation to us and help ensure a better future for the river through education.
