Join us for a fun session to discover the history of the Thames.

A chance to get onto the foreshore at Millennium Bridge and find archaeological ‘treasures of the Thames’. Who knows what will be discovered - smoking pipes, drainpipes, pottery, bones…there is lots of evidence of London's past to be found.

Meeting by the glass obelisk under the north bank of the Millennium Bridge, we will explore the foreshore from there to Queenhithe Dock. We are guaranteed to find pipes, pottery and lots of evidence as the twice-daily tide reveals London's history.

Booking is essential and limited to 30 people. Minimum age for children is 5 years. Maximum of 2 children per adult. If you have any questions please email:[javascript protected email address]or ring 020 8742 0057

Please note - we adhere a policy of no digging and no removing objects from the foreshore.

Please dress for the possibility of bad weather. Wear clothing that can get muddy and wear wellingtons or other suitable stout footwear. Happy exploring.

Meeting Point: The glass obelisk under the north bank of the Millennium Bridge.


Participants must be mobile and able to navigate steep access steps and uneven surfaces on the foreshore.
