Temple Bar Trust and London City Guides - Virtual Live Tours Series II 2021

The Temple Bar Trust, a registered charity set up by the Worshipful Company of Chartered Architects have arranged a programme of monthly virtual tours during 2021. The programme will range far and wide across the City, starting with a special excursion to Greenwich, home of Sir Christopher Wren’s second greatest masterpiece, The Royal Naval College. Subsequent walks will vary from the historic to the contemporary within an overall theme of the City’s evolution and how enormous changes to it's architecture have been brought about by war, fire, plague, religion, and commerce. As we begin to recover from our own plague, Covid-19, how might the City respond this time?

The City Guides panel, several of whom led tours in series one, will each bring their unique style to their talk and there will be an opportunity to ask questions at the end of the live broadcast.

The live streams start at 5:30 on a Saturday evening, once a month throughout 2021. For those unable to make the real time event, there will be an opportunity to watch later via a recording. Please note that recordings are for the personal and private use of those who have booked a ticket.
