The City of London is an area steeped in architectural heritage, yet it continues to be transformed, with major office developments by some of the world’s leading architects. What events shaped this transformation? How do the buildings respond to challenges and opportunities?
We begin at the “Eastern Cluster” of office buildings, including Lloyd’s Building and The Gherkin, and end at Bloomberg’s European headquarters, near Bank Station. We look at the rich history of the City and see some hidden gems along the way.
We also run occasional evening walks of this route. The City has a unique charm after dark; the lighting of buildings reveals intriguing beauty not seen in daylight.

After dark, the buildings of the City of London reveal themselves. When illuminated from inside and outside, there is a vibrancy and warmth not seen in daylight. Join us for this special walk that not only looks at projects by some of the world's leading architects but also investigates the impact of lighting on these buildings and on our environment.
