The Thames Discovery Programme leads regular guided walks on the foreshore for adults, and families with older children/teenagers. These walks focus on the history and heritage of the river including those structures and features exposed by the movement of sediment in this dynamic environment, which are monitored and archaeologically recorded by the FROG.

Some surface-only artefact handling may be permitted when attending a TDP foreshore walk, 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.

The foreshore can be muddy and rocky – please wear boots or wellies!

Please note that this is a strenuous walk over extremely rocky terrain.
