Discovery is just the beginning

Promoting the preservation, protection and research of our nautical heritage.

Help Save The London

Please help us to raise £200,000 to support the work of The London Shipwreck Trust to advance, promote and provide for the preservation of the amazing London shipwreck in the Thames Estuary and its artefacts for public benefit and to protect it for future generations. Discover more here...

Support our Work

Without you — our supporters, members and sponsors — we would not be able to do our work, protecting our global nautical heritage. Join us if you too have a passion for our maritime past and want to get involved, on the foreshore or under water. You will learn that discovery really is just the beginning...
