Charlton Foreshore Walk
Periods: Georgians and Victorians
Guided walk or tour

Join the Thames Discovery Programme to explore the foreshore at Charlton in the London Borough of Greenwich. See the Foreshore Recording and Observation Group in action and learn more about activity on the waterfront, especially shipbreaking at Castle's Yard.

Further information

Please meet at the river stairs next to the Anchor and Hope Pub (nearest railway station: Charlton) at 11.00. 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.
