Once a semi-regular event before the pandemic, the Southbank Centre is resuming its architectural tours of its buildings.

Royal Festival Hall

Love it or hate it, the concrete landscape of one of Europe’s most iconic arts centres has been dividing opinion since it was built in 1967. Have you ever wondered why the Queen Elizabeth Hall is such an irregular shape? Or why it looks as though the concrete is made from wood? Now’s your chance to find out.

The tours will take place at 11am on the following Sundays:

  • 9th June
  • 16th June
  • 23rd June
  • 30th June

Tickets cost £15.50 per person and can be booked here.

The tours last approximately one hour and begin at the Welcome Desk, Level 2, Royal Festival Hall. Each tour is different, and the route varies depending on the day’s activities and events.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

Thank you
