London Festival of Architecture
The Royal Docks is one of the four festival hubs at this year's London Festival of Architecture, themed around boundaries. The world’s biggest annual architecture festival provides a way to see the city differently and participate in debate about our built environment.
Over 30 events are taking place in the Royal Docks throughout June. Walking tours explore the area's industrial history and combine fresh air with foraging. There are supper clubs at Lockside Kitchen, opportunities to explore the UEL Archives, and take an illustrated guided walk.
