London is full of surprises. One of the biggest surprises is how much fascinating design, art and detail there is above our line of sight that we have never noticed. On a Look Up London walk, you will see London’s Skyline in ‘close up’. Every participant gets their hands on a pair of binoculars and is shown the best vantage points to view the roof tops and building facades of London’s iconic built heritage. You may think you know the West End well, but prepare for some Soho Surprises, from a theatrical hatter to a cricket bat, and a Roman chariot to Art Deco. We end up on a tour of Soho before visiting one of its attractive pubs.
How often have you had the opportunity to spy on the upper-storey windows and who knows what you might find in modern day Soho? Join this walk, with Soho Simon, for an eye opener or two!
£15 in advance, £20 on the day – £2 discount if you bring / introduce a friend (that’s £2 off for you and your friend). Students: £7 – £1 discount if you bring / introduce a friend (that’s £1 off for you and your friend) (NUS ID required at start of walk)
