Custom House Stairs next to Sugar Quay, Water Lane, Lower Thames Street, City of London EC3R 6EE

Time: 09.30 - 11.00

Price: £10.30, FREE for Londoners over 75

Join the Thames Discovery Programme for a guided foreshore walk at Custom House to explore the eastern foreshore of the City, not far from the Tower of London, and discover the remains of the Pool of London's wharves and trades. Thanks to funding from City Bridge Trust, this event is free for Londoners aged over 75.

Please meet at the Custom House Stairs at 9.30am. Please note that the foreshore surface can be muddy and unstable, so sturdy footwear (boots or wellies) is recommended. In case of inclement weather, the walk may be postponed or cancelled - please contact the TDP team.

Some surface-only artefact handling may be permitted, but all finds must be examined by the archaeologist on site, and significant artefacts must be recorded with the Portable Antiquities Scheme. Please be aware that if you wish to regularly search the foreshore for artefacts at other times you must be in possession of a Permit to Search the Foreshore, issued by the Port of London Authority.

Booking in advance is strongly recommended, and can be done via Eventbrite.
