Tickets

Join Open City for an afternoon tour along the River Thames that surveys the landmark architecture of central London’s embankments and the skyline beyond

Departing from Crown Pier close to Blackfriars Bridge, the tour will see Benedict O'Looney — Open City’s specialist Architecture on the Thames guide — share the microphone with Nic Durston, Chief Executive of South Bank Employers' Group (SBEG), a pioneering not for profit company that was formed in 1991 to represent the collective ambition of the area’s leading businesses, cultural and arts organisations, social enterprises and landowners.

This afternoon tour along the River Thames will see Nic Durston bring a fresh perspective to the capital’s riverside architecture, speaking alongside our regular guide Benedict O'Looney, a practicing architect based in Peckham and teacher at the prestigious Architectural Association, whose deep insight and thoughtful commentary on all aspects of London’s architecture is widely admired amongst his fellow professionals.

While Benedict will survey the landmark architecture of central London’s embankments and the skyline beyond, Nic who has a background in urban regeneration, heritage and conservation will focus on how SBEG has been at the heart of the South Bank's transformation over the past 30 years.
