What do we think?
Stroll through the City on a summer’s evening with one of Art History UK’s marvellous guides. Discover London’s architectural stars – from Christopher Wren to Norman Foster – and explore the ever-changing face of our complex capital. Compare and contrast stylish, striking structures – both modern and centuries-old – with a wonderful little group of fellow amblers. Public ‘Art Shots’ are a refreshing dose of expert knowledge delivered in a bright, friendly manner by members of the company’s terrific team; a lovely cultural treat before dinner. Top things off by arriving early for a couple of drinks with the group – it’s a Thursday evening, after all! Having spent a fascinating evening on one of Art History UK’s walking tours ourselves last year, we’re certain this will be one to remember. Take a look at our ‘Soho Stories’ walking tour piece here, for an idea of what this fabulous little company offers – and book your place before spaces fill up!
What do they say?
“The City of London has risen like a phoenix from the ashes. Twice. This fascinating history has created an architecturally thrilling amalgamation of old and new. We’ll make our way from Wren’s Baroque masterpiece St Paul’s Cathedral, to Rogers’s sci-fi skyscraper the Lloyd’s building. We will look at other crucial sites on the way including, the historically fascinating Bank of England, Royal Exchange, Mansion House and Leadenhall Market, and compare them with modern and contemporary power-houses such as Number One Poultry, the Rothschild Building, Cheesegrater, Gherkin and Walkie-Talkie – all competing for attention on London’s skyline.”
