London is more congested below ground than above, with all sorts of infrastructure, utilities and other engineering feats. Hidden London is a free walking tour covering some of the most impressive examples of how the work of civil engineers is hidden all around us and makes city life as we know it possible. The tour will explore sites along the Embankment revealing the hidden purpose of some everyday objects and what is really going on beneath our feet.

The tour is sure to be exciting and entertaining for all. Everyone is welcome!

The tour is part of the ICE's Explore Engineering initiative celebrating the Institution and promoting the work of civil engineers. The walk will be run by enthusiastic and knowledgeable volunteers from the ICE London region. It will last approximately 2 hours but this may vary due to the nature of the event. The walk will be leisurely with frequent stops. Participants will be outside and on their feet for the duration of the tour. Regrettably, due to its nature the walking tour is not suitable for those with restricted mobility and the route is not always step-free.

Meeting Point will start from the York Watergate at the end of Buckingham Street, close to Victoria Embankment Gardens, the tour will follow the Thames and finish near the City of London. The nearest tube station is Embankment.
