Event description
Walk with us as the sun goes down and the Illuminated River comes to life.

About this event

The Illuminated River runs through the heart of London along the River Thames and is the longest public art commission in the world, yet no public money has been used to fund it. Each bridge has a specially designed lighting sequence created by the artist and all together they shine a subtle and beautiful light on the Thames and London and will do so for many years to come.

American light artist Leo Villareal and London based architects Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands have created an exciting, moving artwork incorporating their respect for both the natural environment and the character and history of the four bridges that form the first phase of this ambitious, beautiful artwork.

Come and see them with us:

Millennium Bridge, Southwark Bridge, Cannon Street Railway Bridge and London Bridge,

As well as the story of the Illuminated River and how the vision of Leo Villareal has been brought to life, we look at the bridges' history, design and impact on the City. The walk takes around 75 minutes including stopping to look at things along the way.

We try to make our walks as inclusive and accessible as possible and use lifts to access the riverside path.
