Clerkenwell is one of London’s most multi-layered neighbourhoods. From its medieval, monastic origins to its recent emergence as a hub for creative and design professions, it has a vibrant and fascinating story.
Walking from our meeting point at Barbican Station, we discover historic Charterhouse Square. From there, we trace a path through Clerkenwell Green. We see recent residential projects by contemporary architects such as David Adjaye, Steven Holl and Amin Taha and we review the proposed urban transformations of Smithfield Market.
Are you interested in seeing and understanding more about the architecture of London? Join us on an informative walk with an architect as your guide. Our group tours explore the past, present and future of London’s architecture and urbanism. We specialise in giving insight on some of the most interesting and influential modern buildings. We also see how these buildings are shaped by their historical and social context.
Our scheduled tours are aimed at London residents and visitors who are interested in architecture and design and who want to experience a walking tour that goes beyond the tourist routes.
