Ever wonder what our capital will look like in 2050? Let's visit London's skyscraper city and find out!

London is on the up, with new tall buildings rising out of the medieval streets every year. Explore the story behind them, why they look the way they do, who owns them, and how long will they last? Join us as we visit some of the tallest structures in Europe, discuss vertical living, the architectural challenges and the city’s vision for the future. We'll investigate one of London's oldest viewing platforms from the 1600's, the post-war experiments of the 1950's, the high-tech excitement of the Lloyd's Building, plus some of London's most recent tall additions like 22 Bishopsgate and more.
