Discover London's latest architecture and explore how the capital's buildings and streetscapes are changing through a guided walking tour.

Each month we offer 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. 

Saturday 14 February - The City 
Taking St Paul’s Cathedral as the starting point, we looked at the major commercial buildings that accommodate the world's financial capital and the medieval street pattern which accommodates them. From Cheapside’s One New Change shopping centre designed by French starchitect Jean Nouvel through to the work-in-progress on Richard Rogers' The Leadenhall Building adjacent to Norman Foster's iconic Swiss Re building, we discovered a dense cluster of striking exercises in contemporary office design set among some of the best urban space improvements in the capital.
