Footprints of London
Keeping up with the Tides: The Thames in the City and its Changing History
Wed 6 Sep
6:30pm - 8:30pm
The Thames is the longest river in England and is controlled by its tides. The Romans first built a wooden bridge across it near today’s London Bridge and the river, the one constant recognisable feature of the City of London, has witnessed its turbulent changing history.
Join a walk from the Pool of London to Blackfriars and see the features, buildings, names and artwork which reflect the history of the City and Southwark and reflect on what future developments the tides will witness on the horizon. The walk is timed to experience the wonderful changing light on the Thames.
