Event description

Description

This is the fourth year we're holding this popular tour, not least because it's a fraction of the London Transport Museum equivalent. Only the best for our members!

Tour of 55 Broadway, St James's Park - headquarters of London Transport for over 80 years, though soon to be relinquished following the granting of planning permission for its conversion to residential, this 1920s landmark was the tallest commercial building in the capital when it was completed in 1929. Now Grade I listed by virtue of its outstanding architectural importance as London's first office skyscraper, rich use of materials, exceptional inter-war sculpture by the leading artists of the day including Jacob Epstein, Eric Gill and Henry Moore, and its extraordinary degree of intactness, it is one of the finest works by the noted 20th century architect Charles Holden. The tour will include an appraisal of its exterior, the principal interiors and views across the city from the upper terrace.

This event is in support of Railway Children, the charity for homeless children living on India's railway system.
