London’s future is in the east where some of the world’s most famous architects are transforming this historic industrial landscape into a place to live and work.

Join Open City for this afternoon journey down the River Thames starting in Greenwich and going out towards Dartford Crossing and back.

A dramatically different landscape to that of central London Thames embankments, the tour will take in landmarks including Richard Rogers’ Dome, the vast Tate and Lyle Sugar Refinery in Silvertown, the Thames Barrier and Joseph Bazalgette’s amazing Victorian Grade I listed Crossness Sewage Treatment Works.

This unique riverside tour offers a fresh perspective on London’s emerging and established skyline and is led by our specialist guide Benedict O'Looney. Benedict's in-depth knowledge – founded on his work as a practicing architect based in Peckham and a teacher at the prestigious Architectural Association – guarantees deep insight and thoughtful commentary. 

Departing and returning to Greenwich Pier, Cutty Sark Gardens, SE10 9HT. Duration 3 hours approx. Regretfully no children under 7. 

Drinks and light snacks are available for purchase.
