Чем вы займетесь
We will spend an entire day among the gritty vertical neighbourhoods of London’s East End and the Docklands. Throughout the course of the experience, we will connect with the capital’s fascinating post-war urban transformation : from Victorian slum sprawls, to wartime devastation, and finally its monumentally Modernist rebirth. But we will also witness design failures, changing perceptions, and the betrayal of the powers that be : everything that brought about the end of the Welfare State, and with it, the decline of council estates as a model for future communities. We will visit several council estates and high rises : The Bevin Court, Golden Lane and Barbican in the City. The infamous Robin Hood Gardens and Balfron Tower at the Docklands. And the spectacular Thamesmead in London's outer suburbs. We will admire the architecture, mingle with the local community, visit famous film locations, and experience dreamlike urban landscapes and futuristic cities. During our urban explore, we will also see a fair amount of industrial visuals, decay and abandonment, and monumental photography opportunities. It will be a memorable adventure !
I am an urban storyteller : a fan of brutalist and mid-century architecture, a knowledgeable WW2 and Victorian era enthusiast, and I like engaging with abandoned spaces and forgotten history. I am the founder of www.explorabilia.co.uk, a travel company that helps people discover the most astonishing, off beat spaces hidden in plain sight around us ! I do chilled out, fun walking tours with like minded people where we can enjoy special locations and exchange views about their history and significance - so don't expect me to give you a history lecture or throw a heavily scripted narrative at you ;-) I've completed "Supporting the Safety of Women | Travelers & Hosts" seminar facilitated by the National Network to End Domestic Violence (May 6th, 2019)
I will buy you lunch at the Chrisp Street Market or Woolwich Docks, and provide some additional snacks and refreshments…
