A unique opportunity to see the Capital’s glorious, iconic architecture along the River Thames with this, Christmas Special, after dark boat tour, for one day
Creative lighting dramatically re-enforces the diverse buildings and specialist guide, architect Benny O’Looney will enlighten the passengers by providing
commentary with his in-depth knowledge on the history of this architecture. Organised by the Open-City, London's leading architecture education organisation, this tour will give everyone the
opportunity to discover and learn what makes great architecture.
Departing from Festival Pier, the tour will first go upstream, taking in Battersea Power Station, before heading downstream towards Canary Wharf, underneath
colourfully lit bridges including Tower Bridge. Other iconic buildings that will be seen include, Somerset House (Sir William Chambers/Dixon Jones), Tate Modern (Sir Giles Gilbert Scott/Herzog &
de Meuron), The Shard, Oxo Tower, Royal Festival Hall (Allies and Morrison refurbishment), Lasdun's National Theatre and Foster’s City Hall.
