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"
