Architecture on the Thames East

10 November 13:00 - 15:45
Organized by: Open City
Greenwich Pier
Cutty Sark Gardens
London
SE10 9HT

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 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 our specialist guide Benedict O'Looney. Benedict's in-depth knowledge - he is a both a practicing architect and a teacher at the prestigious Architectural Association - guarantees deep insight and thoughtful commentary. 

 

Departing and returning to Greenwich Pier. Duration 2.45hrs. Regretfully no children under 7. Booked for capacity of the inside covered deck in case of rain.

 

Pre-order ticket with mulled cider also available.
