Join us on the foreshore to learn about the history of the Thames and London.

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.
