What to expect

Led by Guardian architecture critic Oliver Wainwright, this tour explores the biggest building site in London: a mile-long stretch of riverside development from Battersea Power Station to the Vauxhall Tower.

This afternoon walking tour will examine what kind of place is being created by this £15bn regeneration project, from the rebirth of the power station to the new US Embassy and the host of luxury apartment towers along the river, forming an entirely new piece of London unlike anything the capital has seen before.
