Take A Post-War Bus Tour Aboard A Classic Routemaster

Professor Joe Kerr is an architectural historian teaching students in the Architecture and Vehicle Design programmes at the Royal College of Art. He is also a London bus driver, working out of Tottenham Garage.

What better guide could you ask for to lead a bus tour of the capital's post-war architecture?

And what better bus to ride in than the archetypal red Routemaster?

This late summer afternoon tour aboard the classic London bus will take you on a trip through the trends and transformations of urban development following WWII, mapping the architectural innovations and experiments that shaped post-war London.

It sounds dead good. Book now.

The post-war bus tour takes place on Saturday, 15 September between 2-5pm. Tickets are £18 (concs £16). Book by phone 020 7001 9844.
