A tour of Brutalist architecture in London aboard the National Trust’s 1962 Routemaster Coach. Led by architectural and cultural experts Tom Cordell and Joe Kerr, the tours explore the emergence and development of Brutalism in the city.
Better-known for country houses, coastlines and cream teas, a series of pop-up openings of concrete Brutalist buildings of the 1960s may seem a significant departure for the National Trust. However, for 10 days from Friday 25th September, the Trust is shining a light on a number of buildings across the nation exposing the significance of Brutalism, a movement that altered the landscape of Britain’s urban environment post war. As part of the celebration, the National Trust is leading a UK-wide series of exclusive tours of Brutalist architecture in London, Sheffield and Norwich.
Saturday 26th September and Saturday 3rd October 10.30am – 4.30pm (5.30pm for drop-off at Southbank Centre).
