Art & Architecture walking tour

This spectacular part of Docklands began as a – risky - vision of an integrated commercial development with significant investment in design and public spaces. Various architectural practices collaborated and some of the world’s leading architects and designers have been involved in its creation. Vast expanses of landscaped open space – including the water filled docks – incorporate striking examples of public art. There is an award winning Underground station and historical remains nestling between state of the art architecture. Soon there will be a Crossrail station. Much to hear and see. Duration c. 2 hours.
