Event description

Description

A series of guided walking tours supported by the National Trust, which will delve into the contemporary heritage of Croydon and shine a spotlight on the borough as one of the most important examples of Brutalist and Modernist architecture. In fact, Croydon is one of the only London boroughs where you can see so many of these examples of post-war optimism.

As John Grindrod, author of the best-selling Concretopia, and a Croydonian himself notes, “there are millions of people like me in Britain, who don’t recognise the village green, country cottage or Georgian square as the epitome of our nation, but whose identities have instead been moulded by ‘concrete monstrosities’ or ‘bad planning’ – or rather, the post-war optimism that sought to build a better future.”

As Croydon continues to undergo such rapid change, join us as we celebrate its architectural landscape on a 60 minute guided tour.
