Architecture on the Thames

  • Crown Pier, Victoria Embankment EC4Y

Arranged with Open City, London's leading architecture education organisation. Join us for this journey on the River Thames. We hope this will be of interest to our business members as well as residents as it is on a Saturday afternoon. Departing from and returning to Crown Pier, Victoria Embankment EC4Y. Duration 2.45 hours approx. Lovely to sit out on deck on a Spring afternoon but lots of space inside in case of inclement weather.   This Open House tour will first take us upstream to Nine Elms, taking in Battersea Power Station, and Foster's Studio. Then cruising downstream, past Michael Hopkins' imposing Portcullis House, iconic Somerset House, and Renzo Piano's hulking Shard. The new vertical towers of the City soar above the lower riverbank architecture creating a dramatic skyline from our unique river perspective.  Led by specialist guide, architect Benedict O'Looney, whose in-depth knowledge guarantees deep insight, thoughtful commentary and humour.  This was such a popular trip when we did it a couple of years ago, this is a second chance to enjoy the amazing river on which we all depend.   Open House Tours are offering a reduced ticket price of £28.40 (20% off normal price of £35.50) per person for our group.  To book a place please send your cheque, payable to “The Marylebone Association”, together with your email address (preferred) or postal address, to Rosemary Forgan, 1/99 Crawford Street, London W1H 2HN.   You will receive a reply confirming your booking.  For any queries email rosemary.forgan@marylebone.org
