Over 50,000 people have visited Creekside Discovery Centre since it opened in 2002. They have gained a unique insight into their local urban environment and associated wildlife. Every year over 7,000 children and adults experience walking in Deptford Creek, equipped with wading boots, waterproof coats and walking sticks.
We offer a range of activities from education schools visit to low tide walks in Deptford Creek as well as family learning sessions during the holidays. Our low tide walks are booked out months in advance so please book early to guarantee a place.
Led by our conservationist with 30 years’ experience, we guarantee you some good, clean, muddy fun! Expeditions last about two hours and advance booking is essential to secure a place. We provide waders, a waterproof and a walking stick and suggest you wear old clothes.
Participants need to be reasonably fit as you will be walking on the bed of a wild river. Children from aged 9 upwards are welcome on these walks but we also offer family activities for younger children.
