Innovative architecture has been part of the City’s built environment since the arrival of the Romans. That trend has continued with major reconstructions taking place after the Great Fire of London and the Blitz but also driven by increasing wealth, emerging institutions and architectural styles and fashions. This online tour introduces people to the most interesting and, sometimes, most controversial buildings in the City, and includes the Roman Wall, the Barbican, examples of Victorian Gothic, the only Art Noveau Building in the City and finishes in the spectacular ‘Insurance Quarter’ where glass and steel are the order of the day.
