A Thames Discovery Programme Guided Walk with a Difference!

This audio walk will be guided by your iPod, Mp3 player, or CD player, featuring the voices of people whose lives have been entwined with the river Thames. (If you don’t have a cd player/mp3 enabled phone/iPod, we can loan a small number of CD players)

This walk, written by Dr Toby Butler from the University of East London, will be a huge experiment – can a group manage to walk in silence together!?

We will begin in Martime Greenwich, one of the most historic riverside areas of London, and the walk explores the hidden history of London’s docks, narrated by people that used to work in the docks and wharfs in London. The walk will recall an area that had a workforce of almost 100 000 people – a culture that has almost disappeared from living memory. It was written a few years ago now, so will the landscape have changed a lot? Find out more on this walk!

We will finish by North Greenwich tube station at about 1pm.

Joining this event is free!
