On this tour led by Owen Hopkins, we meander along Fleet Street, into the Inns of Court and onto Smithfield and St Bartholomew the Great, exploring some of London’s most fascinating and historically minded places. We examine how our experiences of the city are mediated and sustained by its literary and visual histories – real and imagined.
To coincide with the Architecture Space exhibition 'Relics of old London: Photography and the Spirit of the City'.
Meet at the Strand entrance to Somerset House; 1–4.30pm
