Guided Tours

Paul's specialism is 20th and 21st century City of London, the buildings, the landscape, the politics and the economics that have made the City the way it is. He is particularly interested in the way in which the City is likely to change in the next few years as it addresses both globalisation and an expanding population. Current walks include: Walls of London on the Roman London Wall and its relationship with modern architecture; The Eastern Cluster looking at the exceptional architecture of the eastern part of the City; Imagine Golden Lane at Net Zero which addresses the ways in which one of the main residential parts of the City is addressing climate emergency and biodiversity loss; and a variety of tours on landscape and public space.
