It was very entertaining listening to Benedict O’Looney's encyclopedic knowledge of the buildings and bridges along the Thames

Excellent commentary and great to see things from a different viewpoint - both physically and intellectually!

Past Architecture on the Thames tour attendee

The tour offered a large number of vistas which are easily overlooked. As I know the City well, it was particularly rewarding to see buildings with which I was reasonably familiar, from a completely new point of view, through the eyes of a photographer
