Where: Deptford Creek

Did you know that when the tide goes out, there's a stretch of the river in Deptford that is one of the UK's last remaining natural creeks, complete with hundreds of species of birds, butterflies, and types of flowers? In fact Deptford Creek is so treasured people take guided walks of the area, where they find out about the site's varied historical past as a shipbuilding centre, corn mill site and engineering works. Grab a pair of waders - the river's tide can be up to seven metres high.
