Join Thames Discovery Programme to explore the Thames foreshore at Rotherhithe. Led by one of our expert archaeologists, discover the archaeology of this intriguing part of the Thames foreshore. Look for evidence of activity going back hundreds of years, when there was a ship-breaking yard operated by the Cristall and Bailey families. See the remains of ships captured by the Royal Navy in battle.

Please be aware that this event involves walking across uneven and muddy ground. It is not suitable for young children or people with mobility difficulties.

The walk will begin at: 9:30am, Next to Rotherhithe Overground Station (Find the location on What3Words or Google Maps)
