London is Europe’s largest city; it is one of the world’s three financial centres, while also being the most culturally diverse city in the world. Following a period of unprecedented economic growth and prosperity, London’s architecture has never been more exciting, nor as varied as now. World-renowned British and international architects, new architectural talent and young practices have all contributed to London being a laboratory for urban planning and architecture.

The technologically advanced tall buildings of Canary Wharf in Docklands, the residential towers along the River and the high rise projects in the City are all new and exciting features on London’s historic skyline.The regeneration and transformation of run-down inner London neighbourhoods has been led by investment in distinctive and radical public buildings, often widely acclaimed, well-mannered social housing schemes and the imaginative re-use and repair of historic buildings. One-off private houses, and the new and experimental architecture of mixed use buildings on the City Fringe, have all added much in terms of innovative design and sustainable development techniques.

The Olympic venues, under construction in East London for the 2012 Games, are already being lauded for their architectural, engineering and construction achievements. London has very successfully embraced radical and new architecture, despite a town planning system that can be highly political and not always supportive of change.


We organise different types of architecture guided tours in London, up to custom made architecture programs for several days. Please contact us for more detailed information.
