Historic England has been undertaking research on the post-modernist architecture of the 1980s, following threats to many of its finest examples. The tour will start at Bank Station outside No.1 Poultry by James Stirling and Michael Wilford, England’s youngest listed building from 1994-8 (grade II*) and circumnavigate Docklands to include examples of work by CZWG, Jeremy Dixon, Gordon Cullen, Richard MacCormac and John Outram’s remarkable Isle of Dogs Pumping Station. We will cross the river using the Greenwich Foot Tunnel.
The gently paced tour will be mainly on quiet roads and dedicated cycle paths. It will conclude at St Katharine’s Dock c.1.45, where there are pubs and cafés.
Bring your own bike (the area is not all covered by Santander Cycles), snacks and spare parts.
