Saturday 5 September: East Greenwich Architectural Walking Tour

Join Merlin Fulcher – poet, Londoner and The Architects’ Journal Competitions Editor – for a guided walk through a historically-charged landscape poised for massive regeneration. Taking place an part of Doughnut: The Festival of Outer London, the walk will explore the motionless waterfront quays earmarked for London's new cruise ship terminal and an eight hectare OMA masterplan, Mordon Wharf.

Discuss the long-lost hopes of the new Millennium and the future of housing and small scale industry as London weathers the latest global storm. Find hidden fringe spaces for thought and imagination beneath the towering skyline of London’s newest financial district. 

Starting at the Old Royal Naval College, the tour will follow the Thames Path to North Greenwich stopping off at various key sites along the way. It will last approximately one hour departing during the lunch break at the Outer London Festival. Participants may return to the festival site via the Thames Clipper or by bus (fares not included in ticket price).
