Over the past forty years the Eastern City has become home to some of the most distinctive architecture in the capital. Although many of these buildings from Tower 42 to the Gherkin are an important part of the London skyline, less attention has been paid to the way in which this area is changing. A district known for financial services is now home to new landscape developments, public art, eating out and entertainment.
This tour is part of a series of tours organised by EC BID and the London Festival of Architecture exploring the area's past, present and future.
The walking tours will take place on two different days.
Wednesday, 7 September at 6pm
Saturday, 8 October at 11am
