From walking tours to workshops, free talks to exhibitions, NLA offers a wide range of activities for schools, families, Londoners and first-time visitors to discover London’s world-class new architecture and development and learn about how the shape of the capital is changing for the future.
New London Neighbourhood Tours
Discover London's latest architecture on our New London Neighbourhood Tours.
Through walking and cycling, we explore new buildings and streetscapes in London’s many diverse neighbourhoods – each distinct in their character and history.
Private bespoke walking tours also available - contact Molly Nicholson for more information.
NLA’s giant interactive model of central London brings the story of London’s historical and physical development to life. Free lunchtime talks give visitors the opportunity to learn firsthand about London’s newest architecture and development.
Private bespoke and schools model talks also available.
Schools & Young People
Calling all budding architects, engineers, planners and builders! NLA and The City Centre in EC1 have launched a pioneering new Schools & Young People’s programme to inspire the next generation about London’s built environment and the huge range of careers available within it.
Teachers can arrange a self-guided visit, or book a bespoke talk, workshop or tour. We also run free extracurricular workshops for young people to attend in their spare time.
Visit NLA for fun family activities. Parents and children can learn together hearing the story of London’s development and future plans with drop-in workshops, family tours and storytelling.
Through our series of regular family activities NLA aims to inspire and excite a new generation of Londoners, those who will shape the future of our capital!
NLA hosts a range of special one-off events throughout the year for Londoners and visitors of all ages in association with our friends and partner organisations, including the London Festival of Architecture in June, Open House London in September and the Bloomsbury Festival in October.
