It may be a little generous to refer to them as beaches, but at low tide it is possible to climb down the stairs that would usually lead to the river and walk around on the pebbles. The area’s industrial heritage means that collectors are still able to find relics here like old badges and remains of objects manufactured in the old warehouses. While you can take a deckchair and a picnic, make sure you check the tides first as the water level changes dramatically.

Places to find some peace in London

in... London?

There are places beside the Thames in Wapping where one can walk along the pebbled, dirty sands when the tide is low. Once these banks were famed for their smugglers’ connections but these days you’re unlikely to find many bootleggers down there. The sound of gentle lapping water is music to the ears of the silence seeker, which makes the Wapping shores one of London’s premium spots of solace.
