If you find a place that you are interested in, it is worth doing some extra research into the current status of the building and accessibility. Either using google maps or a google search, for example the pictures of Marshall St Baths show it before a £25million rejuvenation project by Westminster City Council.
If you do not fancy making the trip on your own, or want to have a more informed day out you can always join a guided tour by Paul Talling, the website founder. They leave from; Limehouse & Popular, River Fleet, River Westbourne, London Docks, Royal Woolwich Dockyard & Royal Arsenal Canal, Isle of Dogs, the Grand Surrey Canal & The Lost Rivers of Hampstead.
