We provide families and community groups with the chance to enjoy and get to know the Thames.

Also you can book one of our education programmes as an informal learning session; all programmes can be tailored to meet the needs of your group.

If you would like to know how to access the Thames and its foreshore please contact us and we will be more than happy to assist; as the foreshore is a place to treat with caution.

SEND information 

SEND Details

We aim to make all our programmes inclusive and all our river centres have disabled access for children with SEND. Unfortunately wheelchair access on to the foreshore can be tricky, especially at sites with step-only access. We are happy to provide alternative activities to pupils who are unable to accompany their class on to the foreshore. Please contact us in advance of your trip to discuss options and to arrange a pre-site visit.  Please provide us with details of all pupils with SENDEAL and medical conditions prior to your trip.
