Architecture on the Thames East - Saturday 19 May 1pm with pre-order mojito
London’s future is in the east where some of the world’s most famous architects are transforming this historic industrial landscape into a place to live and work.
Join us for this afternoon journey down the River Thames starting in North Greenwich and going out towards Dartford Crossing and back.
A dramatically different landscape to that of central London Thames embankments, the tour will take in landmarks including Richard Rogers’ Dome, the vast Tate and Lyle Sugar Refinery in Silvertown, the Thames Barrier and Joseph Bazalgette’s amazing Victorian Grade I listed Crossness Sewage Treatment Works.
Led by specialist guide, architect Benedict O'Looney with in-depth knowledge, providing excellent commentary.
Departing and returning to North Greenwich Pier.
