London Urban Visit's dinner debates take place in a private location at the top of Erno Goldfinger's Balfron Tower in London E14. Guests enjoy unrivalled views. We encourage free debate about the development and change in the Lea Valley, Poplar and east London. Our evenings are highly successful and have attracted hundreds of guests from senior politicians, developers, architects and planners, local residents, through to the curious visitor.

Lucy Bullivant is an architecture curator, guest lecturer and internationally published author and critic. Her latest book 'Masterplanning Futures' reviews the shift in spatial masterplanning from the creation of fixed blueprints realized as physical form through conventional top down processes to fresh approaches based on creative principles, giving cities a greater resilience and capacity for social integration and change in the future.

"London Urban Visits provides informed, tailored visits for people with a special interest in London's urban change and development. We arrange access to places and people, supported by up to date information, learning and insights. We offer an insider's view, with fresh perspectives and creative experiences.

We also offer opportunities to explore the city in interesting and unusual ways, through walks, workshops, and even running. We work with artists, creative practitioners, and with our partners FIT CITY to bring fresh thinking to urban study, research and exploration.

We are skilled and experienced researchers and practitioners, able to draw on a wide range of approaches to analysis, strategy development, developing leadership and partnerships, and delivering programmes".
