Event description

Description

Join the Thames Discovery Programme for a morning foreshore walk for adults at Greenwich and learn more about the fascinating and unique archaeology and history of the River Thames. The Greenwich foreshore is one of the most exciting and dynamic sites on the Thames. Of particular interest are the remains of Tudor jetties, associated with the Palace of Placentia. Walk leader: Helen Johnston

This walk is part of the Totally Thames festival.

Further information

Please meet at Queens Stairs, in front of the Royal Naval College (nearest station: Cutty Sark) at 9.30am. 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.

Thanks to funding from City Bridge Trust, our events are free for Londoners aged over 75.
