Book-ended by Buckingham Palace to the west and Westminster Abbey to the east, Victoria is a truly unique neighborhood, experiencing unprecedented new developments and rebuilds.

Much of Victoria Street has been redeveloped in recent years. A combination of architects PLP Architects, Lynch Architects and Benson + Forsyth are creating Nova - a 6-acre hub on the western perimeter of Victoria.
 
Our walk will explore the renovation of Cardinal Place by EPR Architects at the heart of the area. Adjacent to the Cathedral Piazza, an entire retrofit of 1970’s classic Elsom Pack and Roberts’ Ashdown House (renamed 123 Victoria Street) has been refurbished by Auckett Swanke, while a brand new development by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects restores cinema to Victoria, side by side with quality big-name restaurant chains at ground level. We will discover how these projects are helping to create a fresh Victoria “high street” mix, which the area historically lacked.
 
This walk starts at the glass sculpture in Cardinal Place.
