The banks and piers along the tidal Thames have witnessed invaders , monarchs and merchantmen, even a polar bear fishing for his supper!

Take a guided walk from Gabriel's Wharf, past famous landmarks and hidden alleyways, over bridges and along the north and south banks. See the site of "London's larder", the wharves where garlic, wines and citrus fruits were unloaded and finish like the last line of the nursery rhyme " a chopper to chop of your head" - by Traitor's Gate under the walls of the mighty Tower of London.

The walk is approximately 2.5 miles in length and suitable for all ages.
Pushchairs will need to be carried up and down a set of stairs to cross a bridge.

Seaside Walk Week is a fantastic opportunity to explore the Great British coast and raise funds to enable struggling families to benefit from a simple break by the sea.

Organised by the Family Holiday Association, Seaside Walk Week (23-31 May) comprises a series of guided walks from two to twelve miles.
