Join the Thames Discovery Programme for a guided foreshore walk to discover the rich heritage of the Thames at Isleworth, and find out about the last surviving WW1 Submarine Chaser and explore the prehistoric, Anglo-Saxon and post-medieval archaeology of Old Isleworth. This walk will give you a chance to explore the archaeological remains on the foreshore with archaeologist Eliott Wragg. The walk will begin at 10:30am, meet outside the Town Wharf Pub. Our guided foreshore walks help support our work to monitor and record the vulnerable archaeology on the Thames foreshore.
