The Thames Discovery Programme and Fulham Palace join forces for a fun family day of river themed archaeology as part of the annual Totally Thames Festival.

Explore a fascinating wealth of local history with guided river walks, then meander back to the Palace for a chance to take part in a host of river-related activities, examine finds and capture your day with a family photo in historical costume.

We will be leading foreshore walks at Fulham and Putney, book your place now! The 11.45am walk will finish in time for you to cross over the river and join the next walk on the opposite foreshore.

Further information

Places on the foreshore walks are limited so booking is essential! The foreshore surface can be uneven and muddy – so 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 / 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.
