Millennium Bridge , London, EC4V

London, GB, EC4V

Join us for a fun session to discover the history of the Thames.

A chance to get onto the foreshore at Millennium Bridge and find archaeological ‘Treasures of the Thames’. Who knows what will be discovered – smoking pipes, drain pipes, pottery, bones…there is lots of evidence of London’s past to be found. Money raised from these sessions goes into supporting our school teaching programme.  

Meeting by the glass obelix under the north bank of the Millennium Bridge we will explore the foreshore from there to Queenhithe Dock. We are guaranteed to find pipes, pottery and lots of evidence as the twice daily tide reveals London’s history…

A note to our regular participants: walks on different days will start and finish at different times depending on the tide and weather conditions. See above for the times of this walk.

    Good evening

    We are travelling from Guernsey and considering this activity. Can you onfirm if you supply the necessary tools, trowels etc?

    Is there anywhere to hire Wellington boots?

      Hello Paul
      Thanks for your message. It is not essential to wear wellies – walking boots or old trainers that you don’t mind getting dirty will be fine.
      We do not use tools are we are only permitted to look at artefacts on the surface of the foreshore.
