Art and Architecture Lectures and Tours

The Gleaming Spires of London

– an armchair tour of London’s finest buildings from the Normans to Norman Foster and beyond.

London boasts an extraordinary range of architecture and the city’s rich legacy and social history can be discovered through its buildings. Starting at the Norman Conquest and the White Tower and finishing over 900 years later at the cutting edge with The Shard, The Walkie-Talkie, and The Cheesegrater this talk reveals the evolution of London through its architecture. We’ll explore public buildings, churches, commercial developments and some surprising residences.

This lecture can be combined with an associated walking tour and I will be happy to discuss the options if required.
