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, which has witnessed its turbulent changing history.

Forming a natural southern boundary to the City, we will walk from the Pool of London to Blackfriars to see the features, buildings, names and artwork that reflect the history of the City and Southwark and to reflect on what future developments the tides will witness.

Meet at Monument Station at the junction of Monument Street and Fish Street Hill.
