Description

Join the Thames Discovery Programme for a guided foreshore walk on the Isle of Dogs and learn more about the fascinating and unique archaeology and history of the River Thames. We’ll be exploring the history of shipbuilding on the Isle of Dogs, including learning about Brunel’s Great Eastern. Find out more about previous investigations on the site and hear all about the most exciting discoveries to date. Walk leaders: Eliott Wragg.

This walk is part of the Totally Thames festival.

Further information

Please meet at the boat slipway of Ferry Lane (nearest station: Island Gardens DLR) at 9.00am. This walk for adults will take place on the foreshore and sturdy walking boots or wellingtons are advised. Please note that the foreshore surface can be very uneven. In case of inclement weather, the walk may be postponed or cancelled. Do contact us if you have any questions about the event.


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.
