Lost cities of the Strand: an exploration

25 November, 2017, 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm

To navigate the city, we need to find things: our place, our destination, our way about. But for everything that can be found in an ancient metropolis like London, many other things have been lost. This architectural-metaphysical walking tour goes in search of vanished monuments amid the tangled streets between Somerset House and St Paul’s, locating what is no longer extant via imprints left in the contemporary cityscape, and reflecting en route on how absence, as much as presence, shapes the urban realm.

Bring a smartphone or tablet for enhanced digital content. Meet at Somerset House, just inside the main entrance from the Strand.

No booking required.
