Feedback from attendees

"I saw parts of London I had not seen before. The tour emphasized even more to me that London is a great city for architecture old and new. James, our guide was flawless!"

"I now know more about key architects whose work I saw; the buildings viewed were rooted in London's key historical events; I learned about a variety of architecture - post war, contemporary and more"

"The tour revealed more about an area one may think one is familiar with, it highlighted specific sights I hadn't previously noticed"
