Are you interested in seeing and understanding more about the architecture of London? Join us on an informative walk with an architect as your guide. Our group tours explore the past, present and future of London’s architecture and urbanism. We specialise in giving insight on some of the most interesting and influential modern buildings. We also see how these buildings are shaped by their historic and social context.
Our scheduled tours are aimed at London residents and visitors who are interested in architecture and design and who want to experience a walking tourthat goes beyond the tourist routes.
We aim to make our walks as inclusive and accessible as possible. None of our routes are very strenuous but if walking, please wear sensible shoes and be prepared for the British weather.
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?
The South Bank, Somerset House and Covent Garden – three London landmarks that have seen spectacular change from their original uses. Although all are cultural destinations, their architectural responses are radically different. How did the buildings develop and adapt, and will they remain relevant in a changing world?
It has been hailed as Europe’s largest urban regeneration project. Like it or loathe it, the transformation of Vauxhall, Nine Elms and Battersea includes plenty of iconic architecture and urban planning. As building work continues, this is an ideal time to take a critical look at key developments in this area.
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.
