“I would like to pass on the thanks of everyone in our group for such an enjoyable tour of the Landscape and Gardens at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park yesterday. It was very interesting to hear the ideas and concepts underlying their design and planting. I think we were all surprised at how much development and building work is still in progress. It was exciting and very appropriate to finish our tour at the Velodrome, especially in light of what happened in the cycling in Rio yesterday evening.”Anne Jones
London Docklands & Canary Wharf – Urban Regeneration Tours
A massive feat of civic engineering turned a once derelict Docklands into 97 acres of sought after office and retail space. Canary Wharf is home to more than 112,000 jobs, 5 malls, restaurants, performing arts and events, award winning stations. The instantly recognizable skyline sits among landscaped parks, fountains, tree-lined plazas and walkways. We can also explore the Royal Docks and wider area.
King’s Cross development – Urban Regeneration Tours
After 150 years of industrial use, the area to the north of King’s Cross station is being transformed into a vibrant new city quarter. There are new homes, shopping, offices, cultural venues, bars and restaurants, there’s even a university. Historic buildings are being restored and complemented by contemporary architecture. These buildings are set within a framework of new parks, squares and streets.
