Join us for this evening journey down the River Thames exploring the architectural landmarks that contribute to making London such a vibrant and dynamic city. This river cruise will look at the impressive mix of historic and modern architecture that makes the river-front so architecturally diverse.
The Thames embankments are home to Somerset House (Sir William Chambers/Dixon Jones), Tate Modern (Sir Giles Gilbert Scott/Herzog & de Meuron), Oxo Tower, Royal Festival Hall (Allies and Morrison refurbishment), Foster’s City Hall, Riverbank House (David Walker Architects) and the Design Museum to name a few.
Departing from Festival Pier, the tour will first go upstream, taking in Battersea Power Station and Foster's Studio, before heading downstream past The Shard and under Tower Bridge as the sun is setting, to the Docklands before ending back at Festival Pier.
Led by a specialist guide with an in-depth knowledge, providing excellent commentary
