Sir Edwin Lutyens (1869-1944) is seen as one of England's greatest architects of the early 20th Century. His work was romantic in inspiration, classical in discipline and always executed with exemplary craftsmanship using the finest materials, including fine brick and stonework.
Fortunately, London includes many great examples of Lutyens work. Several are located in Whitehall and St. James, where Lutyens also based his office. On this tour, guided by an architect, we view a selection of his residential and commercial projects within the architecturally rich surroundings of this most historic area. Highlights include handsome houses around Smith Square, a grand building at 67 Pall Mall and Lutyens only social housing scheme.
The walk starts in the centre of St. John's Gardens, a 10-minute walk from Pimlico Station, and ends at Piccadilly Circus.
