Mudlarking and Archaeology Foreshore Exploration

“…when the tide goes out London reveals its past…” .

The Thames foreshore is London’s longest archaeological site. Each day the outgoing tide reveals a different array of artefacts. Join us on the foreshore (the land which is exposed when the tide goes out twice a day) to discover what secrets the Thames has left you!

We have been running foreshore exploration for 30 years and our 2 hour scheduled and private tours are guided by experienced archaeologists who are trained in foreshore health and safety.

Please help us preserve London’s heritage by not taking artefacts from the foreshore

Please read our artefact policy
