This is a fascinating introduction to how the ‘curve’ is seen as a significant and often very unusual feature of 12 iconic structures within the City of London ‘Square Mile’
Our walk begins at the Monument, an amazing 202 foot single Doric column, the tallest free standing column in the world built by the great architects Wren and Hooke to commemorate where the Great Fire of London started in 1666.
The walk continues to embrace a curvaceous city, its curve setting tongues wagging not only by awe inspiring architecture or unforeseen amusing calamity but also through unexpected long lost discoveries underground.
Our walk finishes at the very famous St Paul’s Cathedral the dome that by all accounts should have definitely been a spire. Find out about the stories behind these buildings and 10 others both modern and old and be amused and surprised by what you discover!
This walk will start at the Monument just outside Monument Station and finishes at St Paul’s Cathedral near St Paul’s Station. Duration 2 hours.
