RIBA Walking Tours - City of Culture, Learning & Faiths
Join the RIBA guides on a walking tour around Hope Street, one of the most important streets in the city, and discover more about the buildings and spaces that have influenced generations. It is also the home of the RIBA’s 2014 Stirling Prize winner, the Everyman Theatre.
We start at the beginning of Hope Street at Frederick Gibberd’s Metropolitan Cathedral and finish at the other end of Hope Street at Sir Giles Gilbert Scott’s Anglican Cathedral. There can’t be many streets that boast two cathedrals. The tour tells the tale of a street that has inspired creativity and gives you a taste of the arts, education, music, politics, religion and even places to relax and unwind in.
