RAD London Site Tours with Farrells
Royal Albert Dock is a new £1.7bn, 4.7m sq ft international commercial district being delivered by ABP London. It is brilliantly connected with three DLR stations, within walking distance of the new Elizabeth Line, and directly opposite London City Airport.
Book your space on a guided tour with Farrells, who designed the masterplan for the development to hear about the design process of this brand new waterside development and dynamic commercial district.
Sir Terry Farrell’s award-winning practice Farrells has designed the masterplan for Royal Albert Dock. Their previous commissions include the new headquarters for the Home Office, the conversion of the Grade I listed Royal Institution of Great Britain and KK100 in Shenzhen, which is the tallest building in the world by a British architect.
How to get there
The closest station is Beckton Park DLR. Exit the station and the building is the first you will see on the right upon exiting the station. Head to the front of the building with the revolving doors.
Part of the London Festival of Architecture 2019.
