What we're about
Upcoming events (1)
After a false start we are going to re-start 2022’s series of guided walks with a lovely stroll through the Square Mile exploring the City’s skyscrapers.
In the last 40 years London has been transformed with the addition of the Lloyd’s building, the Gherkin, the Cheesegrater, the Walkie Talkie, and many more. There are reasons for the strange shapes of these buildings, and we will talk about the successes of these shapes and the less successful unfortunate outcomes of some of these unusual designs. We will also talk about the causes of this expansion in the City, and a little bit about the owners of these giants in the sky. On the walk we will also visit a lovely sky garden where we will have a lovely view of many of London’s iconic buildings.
We will meet outside London Bridge Station at the Duke Street Hill exit opposite the London Bridge Experience at 13:00. Your guide will be Michael (just look out for a bearded young man in his sixties wearing a guides badge) I can be reached on[masked] if you have trouble finding us. From here I will take you to the site of the most awesome view of the Shard, it will knock your socks off. The cost of the walk is a very reasonable £8, it will take about 2 hours and will finish at the Barbican. After the walk you are all welcome to join us in one of the Barbican’s many cafes for a friendly chat about our adventure. I look forward to seeing you lots of new and old friends.
