Explore Secret Stories London's Wildest Place Tour, a self-guided interactive walking tour to enjoy whenever you want.

This tour is part of an Ordnance Survey series of bite-sized, tongue-in-cheek stories for you to read out loud. Expect nutty nature, smelly smugglers, raucous royals… you get the idea.

Discover the huge expanses of marsh and reclaimed military land spread over the wilds of the Thames floodplain. This long walk covers impressive expanses of ever-regenerating nature, with wildlife aplenty. Expect to see marsh harriers, herons, wading birds, marsh frogs, butterflies, dragonflies and much, much more — at any time of the year.

You’ll also come across plenty of history going back thousands of years. You’ll see how concrete boats helped with the war effort, the remains of stone age forests and the traces of ferries, flood defences and seawalls from times past.

Total length: 5.99 miles; Suggested age range: 7+
