RIBA Friends Architecture Walking Tour: Southwark & London Bridge

Maligned and ignored for decades, Southwark and London Bridge are now resurgent with new monuments and grand programmes of refurbishment. In this walk, the London Ambler, explores architecture old and new through the streets and spaces of the city’s fastest changing neighbourhoods.

Unrestrained by the bylaws and manners of the City and Westminster, London south of the Thames developed in its own distinct way. Developed first in the 16th century, Southwark and London Bridge became a commercial powerhouse of the Victorian city with a dense network of disorderly factories, railways, wharves and warehouses. Maligned and ignored for decades, these districts are now resurgent with new monuments and grand programmes of refurbishment. In this walk, the London Ambler, explores architecture old and new through the streets and spaces of the city’s fastest changing neighbourhoods.
