The Mysterious History of Rotherhithe - Walking Tour

(£15 per person - includes admission to the Brunel Museum / 90 minutes approx. / starts at museum entrance)

Our next walking tours will resume in the new year, meeting at the Brunel Museum entrance:

The Brunel Museum sits in the heart of Rotherhithe, an area of South-East London that is rich in history. 

Our expert guides will take you back in time through some of Rotherhithe’s most interesting sights, from the ruins of King Edward III’s manor house and where the Mayflower first set sail to colonial America, to the tomb of a eighteenth-century prince of Palau and, of course, the site of Marc Brunel’s Thames Tunnel.

The in-depth walking tour of Rotherhithe Village will begin and end at the Brunel Museum itself where guests will be able to explore our Engine House exhibition and Grade II* listed Tunnel Shaft at their leisure.
