Who Owns London?

20 September 2017 – 28 February 2018

Modern London is a seething cauldron of change, its skyline, and its population, altering day by day. But, beneath its shifting surface, huge stretches of the city have stayed in the same hands for hundreds of years. This 14-part series of lectures and accompanying walks explains who bought and developed Norman, medieval, Georgian, Victorian and 20th century London. Fit those ancient and modern layers together, and you see why London looks like it does today, thanks largely to its landowners – monarchs, guilds, princes, aristocrats, the Church and the councils.
