See our current events

Come and search the river walls for evidence of Hammersmith’s changing waterfront. Since the 19th century, Hammersmith has been home to a distillery, sugar refinery, lamp factory and water pump factory as well as connections with the African slave trade so look for evidence that tell us about these Victorian industries on the river bank and the people who worked and lived there including a member of royalty. Take a stroll with Dr Fiona Haughey and discover the importance of the foreshore and the river walls for the continued survival of Thames complex wildlife.


Unfortunately, not accessible for those with mobility issues.

The site is very muddy - suitable footwear is required.
