Discover London's latest architecture on the New London Walking Tours, now taking place twice a month! 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 wendesday 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.

Fitzrovia - Wednesday 29 July

Fitzrovia has shrugged off its post-War Bohemian past by being transformed successfully into a part of central London full of high quality design and refreshing urban planning initiatives. Once famous as the birthplace of advertising and the three-hour lunch, now its restored Georgian splendour in the shadow of 60’s icon the BT Tower segues seamlessly into dynamic office schemes between the bustling Tottenham Court and Euston Roads. Nowhere else in the centre of the city boasts a broader combination of health, educational, commercial and residential schemes today. The walk covers a combination of completed and works-in-progress by such practices as Wilkinson Eyre and Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands. 

This walk starts at NLA and finishes near Great Portland Street tube station.
