Discover the archaeology of the City of London at Custom House waterfront from its Roman origins to the Victorian period as you explore the eastern foreshore of the City. Guided by one of our expert archaeologists, you’ll discover the pivotal role of the Pool of London in the city’s trade and growth.

The walk will begin at 9:30am, meet at the stairs at the end of Water Lane.

Our guided foreshore walks help support our work to monitor and record the vulnerable archaeology on the Thames foreshore.

Further information

Places are limited so booking is essential! The foreshore surface can be uneven and muddy – please wear sturdy footwear; boots or wellies are recommended! In case of inclement weather, the walks may be postponed or cancelled.

The TDP leads regular guided walks on the foreshore for adults, and families with older children and 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
