Walking Tours of the Great Estates: Broadgate, Cadogan, St James's and Mayfair

Friday 15 November 2013

14:00 - 15:30

Please check individual walk descriptions for meeting points

As part of the current NLA exhibition Great Estates: How London's landowners shape the city, NLA invited a series of the Great Estates featured in the exhibition to lead walking tours of their estates.

The aim of each tour is to provide a general introduction to the history and development of the estate, visiting any significant new architecture, development and public realm improvements, and providing an understanding of the future ambitions for the development of the estate.

Tours last 1 - 1,5 hours and have to be booked in advance (cost: £12 inc. VAT) - please use the links below to book. Please note that all tours take place at the same time, so you will only be able to book and attend one.
