Architecture on the Thames East
Saturday 24 October 1pm

Join us for this 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 look at landmarks including The Dome, the Tate and Lyle Sugar Refinery in Silvertown, the amazing Victorian Grade I listed Crossness Sewage Treatment Works (Joseph Bazalgette), and future of the Thames Barrier to name a few.

Regretfully no children under 7. Departing and returning to Greenwich Pier, Cutty Sark Gardens, SE10 9HT. Cost £35.50.

Feedback from past Architecture on the Thames tour attendees

"...view from different aspect, a brilliant tour - speaker was superb"

"It was very entertaining listening to Benedict O’Looney's encyclopedic knowledge of the buildings and bridges along the Thames"

"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"
