Yes, it literally is a rubbish tour. You’ll be escorted over the Isle of Dogs and under the river to Greenwich, stumbling across historic relics cast off to various trash heaps along the way.

The one hour and 45 minutes-long tour will be full of surprises and incredible insights into London’s rubbish past.

A scrap of junk food is included in the price.
