Although often overshadowed by the grandeur of Wren’s neighbouring Greenwich, Deptford itself is not lacking in architectural significance. Buildings designed by a Stirling Prize winner, RIBA Gold Medalist, international starchitects and some of the UK’s best emerging talent can be found within this rapidly changing Thames-side community.
Join Deptford-based award-winning architect Nicholas Burwell and architectural historian and local resident Tom Ravenscroft for a walking tour of Deptford, where we will explore the historical highlights, modern masterpieces and hidden contemporary gems of this lively neighborhood. Wrapping up at one of Deptford's local pubs, to enjoy a cold beverage and priceless networking with your fellow explorers.
This tour is running as part of Deptford X, London’s longest-running contemporary art festival – its core programme is a platform for emerging contemporary artists, with a strong foundation of support from art-world professionals. Deptford X Festival takes place in multiple locations across Deptford over 10 days from Friday 23rd September to Sunday 2nd October 2016. It is a unique opportunity to see new commissions in diverse spaces all within walking distance of each other.
