Join us for this journey down the River Thames as the sun sets and creative lighting dramatically re-enforces the night time presence of iconic landmarks that contribute to making London such a vibrant and dynamic city.
Illuminated along the Thames embankments are Somerset House (Sir William Chambers/Dixon Jones), Tate Modern (Sir Giles Gilbert Scott/Herzog & de Meuron), Oxo Tower, Royal Festival Hall (Allies and Morrison refurbishment), Foster’s City Hall, Riverbank House (David Walker Architects) and The Shard to name a few.
Departing from Festival Pier, the tour will first go upstream taking in Battersea Power Station and Foster's Studio, before heading downstream past The Shard and under Tower Bridge (where a new illumination to mark the 2012 Olympics replaced the first significant illumination of 25 years) towards Docklands, before ending back at Festival Pier.
Led by a specialist guide with an in-depth knowledge, providing excellent commentary

"Sounded interesting and it certainly was. Excellent commentary and great to see things from a different viewpoint - both physically and intellectually!"
"I saw familiar sights from a different angle and now know a lot more about architecture on the river and have a new-found appreciation of modern architecture"
