Saturday 13 December 2014

14:00 - 16:00 (meet at 13:45)

Meeting point: Southwark Quay tube station

Discover London's latest architecture on the New London Walking Tours. Explore how the capital's buildings and streetscapes are changing through a guided walking tour of one of six Central London quarters - each distinct in their character and history.

Discover major new architectural landmarks alongside lighter touch interventions, and how these projects are being embedded into and are adding new dimensions to the fabric of the city's historic urban context.  

Walks take place on the second Saturday of each month, begin at 13:45 and last approximately two hours. All are on foot and are led by professional Blue Badge Guides. The cost per person is £12.00 and includes VAT. Pre booking is essential.

Saturday 13 December - Bankside
Taking the Tube from NLA to the Millennium Bridge, we cross the River Thames to Tate Modern. The gallery and the More London development to the east have been catalysts for Bankside’s regeneration. New residential by Rogers Stirk Harbour and office accommodation by Allies and Morrison have transformed a neglected backwater into London’s most dynamic work/live hub. The train lines still criss-cross overhead but the perception of this once undesirable Dickensian backwater is changing with the development of Herzog and de Meuron's angular brick extension to Tate Modern. This walk meets at Southwark tube station, just past the ticket barriers and finishes near London Bridge station.
