It is the London Architecture Festival at the moment and we thought you might like to hear more about some of the interesting things going on. There are plenty of fun rides, including tours of London’s art deco heritage, tours of churches, and pedal powered cinemas to enjoy. We’ve picked out a couple that are coming up soon…
First up a tour tomorrow of 375 Kensington High Street. If you’ve been wondering what is going on behind those hoardings at the corner of Kensington High Street and Warwick Road then pop along tomorrow evening at 6pm. You can find out more here.
Then the big one… the London Velonotte. Yes, a bike ride at night. The idea for the night time rides started in Moscow and is this summer coming to London to celebrate the Olympics. The tour guides will be taking you around the East End to discover London’s architectural history. Meeting at Brushfield Street, E3 at 11.30pm, the tour will run through until Dawn with a party in Canary Wharf. Tickets are just £7, and you can find out more here.
On 28 June from 6.30 pm you can join the debate on how cycling is shaping London’s architecture. Chaired by Jon Snow of Channel 4, the evening will kick off with a series of short films by London cycling enthusiasts, and will finish up with a debate on how urban planning can create a safer environment for people travelling in London. The event is free, but you can find out more and register your attendance here.
