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 eight Central London quarters - each distinct in their character and history.

If you are booking a ticket this morning, Wednesday 27 May, please print and bring your ticket with you on the tour.

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, please arrive for registration at 10:15. 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.

Taking St Paul’s Cathedral as the starting point, we look 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 Richard Rogers' The Leadenhall Building adjacent to Norman Foster's iconic Swiss Re building, we discover a dense cluster of striking exercises in contemporary office design set among some of the best urban space improvements in the capital.
This walk starts at St. Paul’s tube station, the exit next to Café Nero and finishes near Bank and Liverpool Street stations.
