Join Society Chairman, Peter Murray for the launch of our series of events based on London's Great Estates.
Grosvenor, de Walden, Portman, Bedford - the estates of London - are key to the capital's special and distinctive character. Today modern estates such as Kings Cross, Broadgate and Village East London are also providing some of the benefits of their ancient peers: long-term thinking and investment, high quality placemaking, on-going maintenence and careful stewardship.
A key part of the Society’s 2017 programme will be on the theme of these estates, with walks and tours and comment in the London Society Journal. This series will celebrate the best of the estates while aiming to understand their modus operandi and review what lessons they hold for the London of the future.
