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 and now also on the last Wednesday of each month. Wednesday tours will begin at 10:30 and last approximately two hours. All are on foot and are led by professional Blue Badge Guides. The cost per person is £15.00 and includes VAT. Pre booking is essential.

St Giles, Regent Street and Soho - Wednesday 26 August 
With the Crossrail project tunnelling beneath the West End, major above ground works will deliver new buildings enhanced public spaces. On the way from St Giles in the east with its new Renzo Piano mixed-use development to the public space improvements around Oxford Circus we will look at the way new architectural planning has threaded into the dense social and historic fabric of Soho. We also see how retrofits and new-builds from leading practices such as Eric Parry Architects renew the 350 year-old landscape of the world behind Regent Street in Mayfair.
This walk starts at New London Architecture and finishes near Oxford Circus tube station.
