Aldgate Tube, exit on Aldgate High Street | Map

Guided by Ruth

This new London Urban Geology walk will look at London’s buildings through the stones used to construct them. We will concentrate on the ‘post-modernist architecture’ of the 1980s and 1990s when exotic stones were imported for decorative cladding from all over the world. We will see examples of spectacular granites formed in the process of building mountains and even stones that were hit by a meteorite 2 billion years ago.

LONDON WALKS PRIVATE WALKS

If you can't make one of the regularly scheduled, just-turn-up, public Urban Geology walks do think about booking one as a private tour. If you go private you can have an Urban Geology Walk – or any other London Walk – on a day and at a time that suits your convenience (depending on Ruth's and her team of geologists' availability of course). We'll tailor it to your requirements. And – always with private London Walks and tours – we go to great lengths to make sure the guide-walker(s) "fit" is well nigh perfect. Ring Fiona or Noel or Mary on 020 7624 3978 or email us at london@walks.com and we'll set it up and make it happen for you. A private London Walk – they're good value for an individual or couple and sensational value for a group – makes an ideal group or educational or birthday party or office (team-building) or club outing.

GIVE THE GIFT OF LONDON WALKS

A private London Walk makes a fab present – be it a birthday or anniversary or get-to-know-your-new neighbourhood gift or Christmas present or whatever. Merchandise schmerchandise (gift wrapped or not) – but giving someone an experience, now that's special. Memories make us rich.
