Escape London's crowds with our expert archaeologists and discover the archaeology of this iconic historic area. Whilst immersed in a hidden urban environment with breathtaking views, learn about:

  • How a Tudor entertainment area became an industrial zone before becoming a leisure area again
  • The intriguing industrial archaeology surviving on the foreshore
  • Find out about the skiffs and wherries that carried Londoners between river causeways

Please be aware that this event involves walking across uneven and muddy ground.

The walk will begin at: 08:30 at the river stairs near the Founders Arms pub (Find the location on: What3Words or Google Maps)

Our guided foreshore walks help support our work to monitor and record the vulnerable archaeology on the Thames foreshore.
