Description

Friday 28 September 2018 – Explore the Evolving City of London

The City of London is changing as never before. 1950s and 60s buildings are being torn down and 21st century buildings rise in their place. New skyscrapers with every stranger nicknames join the skyline and new buildings in ever stranger shapes fill the irregular plots of building land. More varied building materials are used, from beautiful bronze to pearlised glass to coloured mirrored glass. Ancient Roman and medieval passageways are being opened up across previously closed sites and even ancient waterways are remembered.

For those who think they know London, or think they know the City, this tour is for you!

Meet at 6pm at the exit from Barbican tube station

Post-tour drinks at The Lamb Tavern in Leadenhall Market
