Next Thames Foreshore Walk Dates

Clayground’s special ceramics foreshore walks are ever popular. Led by Clayground and Thames archaeologist, Mike Webber, we explore the beach looking for ceramic fragments and clues they reveal to London’s social and trading history.  Mike’s knowledge is encyclopaedic and the churning of the River means we always find something different and learn something new about ceramics, technical innovation, changing tastes, trade and development of the capital.

The next Thames Foreshore walks are:

Saturday 15 Sept meet up 1145
Saturday 29 Sept meet up 1045
Sunday 14 October meet up 1115
Saturday 27 October meet up 1000

Locations will be advised on booking. Simply contact us if you would like to book a place specifying numbers and age of any children.

Fee is £25 per adult, £15 for young people 8-17.  The walk lasts approximately 2.5-3 hours. You will be asked to pay by e-transfer or cheque.

NB The walks are unsuitable for anyone who is not confident using stairs or walking on uneven ground. Please do not plan to bring a dog.

Further information and directions will be sent on booking.

Clayground has to pay the Port of London Authority in advance for a group licence for each walk.  Refunds for cancellation of reservation are not possible unless we have a waiting list.
