Twin walking tours, led by the Blue Badge Guides, covering both eastern and western areas of the City, will look at the interplay of new and old architecture, demonstrating the complexity of inserting new ideas and developments into the dense urban fabric of the City’s medieval street-plan.

London Bridge and Southwark
Southwark and the area around London Bridge have long been linked to the development of the City of London, as the southern end of the first ever 'London Bridge', built around 80AD to link the north and south banks of the river. This special one-off walk, led by the Blue Badge Guides, will refer back to these Roman connections and then bring us up to date with the major developments that are currently taking place. These include The Shard by Renzo Piano, the total reconstruction of London Bridge station by Grimshaw Architects and the recladding of Guy's Hospital by Penoyre & Prasad. The walk will include the River Thames walkway with excellent views of the City and through More London by Foster + Partners to return by Tooley Street to London Bridge station.
