Lutyens Walking Tour

The Westminster of Edwin Lutyens

Sir Edwin Lutyens (1869-1944) dominated the Edwardian era as the architect of new country houses and urban mansions. As his client base expanded to include some of the wealthiest and most celebrated figures of the day, he also designed commercial blocks, notably for Midland Bank, war memorials and, eventually, city plans. His Viceroy's House in New Delhi is, perhaps, the most magnificent palace of modern times.

Sir Edwin Lutyens

Incredibly prolific, Lutyens's developed more than six hundred commissions. Unlike many of his contemporaries, he shunned the emerging modern movement styles. He continued to work in crafted stone and brick when other leading architects were embracing steel, concrete and glass.

Join Seeing Architecture's new summer walking tour to discover several of Lutyens's residential and commercial buildings in their context, the historic and elegant neighbourhoods of Whitehall and St James. The quality of the buildings is outstanding and best seen in real life.

Architect Ross Logie leads this new, summer walk for Seeing Architecture. Please visit our Tours page for booking details.
