What To Expect
The heart of London encapsulates everything the city's urban fabric has to offer. Squares, street-scapes, views and monuments all construct an indelible image of London's urban identity and offer a dazzling catalog of architectural styles from the past five centuries. The West End may famous as a hedonistic pleasure playground crammed with shops, restaurants, bars and attractions. But behind this conspicuous consumerism lies an imperial capital city fashioned by the grand visions of some of the greatest architects of their day.
An extraordinary quartet of interlinked, world famous public spaces defines London's center and provides the ambitious urban canvas on which some of its most important and recognizable buildings lie. Recently restored Trafalgar Square is the symbolic heart of London, a 19th century civic composition that is now one of the most famous public spaces in the world and as much a cultural icon as it is an architectural one. Piccadilly Circus, with its chaotically converging vistas and acres of neon, embodies the West End's relentless energy and animation. Leicester Square, crammed with bars and cinemas, began as a noble 17th century residential development and is now the glowing epicenter of London's entertainment district. And Oxford Circus, straddling Europe's busiest shopping street, is a swirling fusion of architecture and commerce.
Your architect guide will reveal the role that architecture has played in creating the dynamic centrepiece of one of the most exciting cities in the world.
