Event description

Description

Join Publica as we embark on a night walk along the Thames and challenge our perception of the role of the Thames in today's city.

The River at Night

This guided tour leads participants along the river at night and allows them to gain awareness of how darkness and lighting affect the way we see and experience riverside public space. The walk, which begins by tracing the historic edge of the north bank, explores the variety of after-dark environments that have evolved along the river and examines the way in which light 'edits' views of the city after nightfall. The tour highlights the history of civic ambition that shaped the public spaces and infrastructure along the river and encourages participants to imagine the future potential of these spaces.

Tickets are free to enable this event to be attended by everyone.

River Walks series seeks to foster a new approach to the Thames; to recognise its social, ecological and commercial value to London.
