Following the festivities of the weekend, we are now in the quiet 'in-between week' leading up to New Year's Eve. Various tours and outside events this week will help work off those roast dinners, and let you get to know this fantastic city a little bit better. Wrap up warm, and get out there!
Opening on New Year's Day, this exhibition focuses on the iconic Bank of England, and the history and activities for which the stone building is the setting. This showcase displays artefacts and photographs not normally seen by the public, and gives an insight into the inner workings of the formal establishment.

The tour will take in the best of the Christmas Lights, and utilises the best of the cycle paths of London, from Soho to Chelsea and Westminster.

This tour is the last in the series of tours of Denys Lasdun's National Theatre. The National Theatre, with it’s soaring concrete façade, has been the focus of debate and scrutiny since its completion in 1976. With its dominant location on the South Bank, the Lasdun building defines the approach to the South over the Thames.
