Guided Walk: The London Ear

Guided Walk: The London Ear

This event has finished Took place on: Tuesday, 12th Jun 2018

This guided walk explores the City of London’s sounds, past, present and future.

The walk takes place during the lunch hour/rush hour, two of the most hectic and noisy times of the week. Expect a strange mix of ancient bell-ringing with wailing sirens, rattling jackhammers and hissing espresso machines.

The London Ear blends real-time listening with stories about sounds from the City’s past, such as the metallic scraping that inspired a street name, and the birdsong that triggered a bucolic hallucination. It also offers insights into how London might sound in the future.
The walk contains stories, insights and surprises for those whose ear isn’t technically trained alongside the more musically minded. Tour goers will be guided to refine their ear for the City and pay attention to what they usually filter out.

Cost: £16.76
