Architecture Photo Walk: Smithfield and Charterhouse

Members' Event

Smithfield Photo Walk

Depart the Barbican high walks to find inspiration for your images within the layers of nearby architectural history.

Join photographer Anthony Palmer on this walk around Cloth Fair and Smithfield to discover fragments of old London from the medieval to the Victorian. Then from monastery to Tudor mansion, we’ll stop by the historic Charterhouse to see how recent architectural innovations have added a new story to this historic site.

All abilities welcome and members must bring camera equipment they are comfortable to walk with (can include phones or tablets).

The meeting point for the tour is opposite to the main entrance of the shop on Level G.

The tour will last approximately 1 hour 30 mins.

This event is open to Barbican Members and Membership Plus only. Members are welcome to bring a guest, they will need their own ticket.
