Maths in the City - Mathematical walking tour of London
Thanks for your interest in our mathematical walking tour of Oxford. More tours will be available in the autumn.
About the tours
The Maths in the City tours bring to life the maths that helps to build and run the urban environments in which we live. The tours have been created to be as accessible as possible and don’t require you to be a mathematical expert. They last around 80 minutes and consist of an interactive walking tour between the Tate Modern and St Pauls Cathedral. There will be a number of maths demonstrations, which we hope you will get involved in.
