Join the Thames Discovery Programme for an evening foreshore walk for adults at Wapping and learn more about the unique archaeology and history of the River Thames.

Find out more about this fascinating foreshore at Wapping – near the headquarters of the River Police – and explore this sometimes puzzling foreshore.

Further information

We will be meeting at the river stairs next to the Town of Ramsgate Stairs pub at 6.45pm. This walk is suitable for adults, and wellington or walking boots are recommended! Please note that in the event of inclement weather this walk may be postponed or cancelled.

Please Note: our guided 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.
