London Riverside A journey along the river Thames will be rewarded with impressive panoramas of the city, offering new views of the London skyline at every bridge and bend in the River. Several epochs have left their mark on the varied architecture along the River; here, the pretension of power of the British Empire manifests itself in buildings such as the Palace of Westminster and Somerset House. But also 21st Century cultural life takes place on the Thames, in the sublime post-war architecture of the Royal Festival Hall, the brutalist statement that is the National Theatre, and in the ‘cathedral’ of industrial heritage, the Tate Modern.

After years of ad hoc private sector and National Lottery-funded developments, the Mayor of London and Lambeth Council have demonstrated a reawakened interest and involvement in London´s riverside urban planning, with a new City Hall and large scale urban plaza. The recent pedestrian links via the Millennium and Hungerford Bridges, and the London Eye, are further testimonies of an underused city space being successfully rediscovered.


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