Along The North Shore - The Architecture of London's Middle City

This event has finished Took place on: Saturday, 18th Aug 2018

Clinging to the banks of the Thames between the historic hubs of the City and Westminster, lies London's teeming Middle City. Settled first by the Saxons in the 7th and 8th centuries this great third place was known as Lundenwic and by the middle ages it was at the heart of aristocratic life on the river, home to the great waterside palaces of Medieval and later Tudor England's richest merchants, courtiers and noblemen. Located at the strategic mid-point between commercial and political power, the area boomed in the 18th and 19th centuries simultaneously as London's great and varied centres of law, newspapers, gossip and entertainment.
From watergates, palaces and hotels to medieval cloisters, churches and Parisian boulevards, this walk explores the multifarious landscape of the northern shore between Charing Cross and St Brides to reveal London's great Middle City through its best kept architectural secrets and spectacular sleeping giants.

Cost: £12.00
