Visit us at Coal Drops Yard to learn the story of London’s development and how NLA is playing a role in the future shape of the city. In this brand new space featuring our model of central London, this exhibition brings to life London’s story, from a Roman settlement in AD43 to the dynamic, global and evolving capital city it is now.
NLA has documented and championed London’s development since 2005, in our year-round programme we drive London towards a sustainable and equitable future, as set out in our New London Charter. In this exhibition we illustrate London’s strengths, the changing skyline, and how the city must adapt if it is to deliver zero carbon goals.
Pop in for a coffee and look around or join one of our tours to learn more!
Join us for this free lunchtime talk in our new space at Coal Drops Yard and learn about London’s historical and physical development.
NLA’s giant interactive model of central London brings the story of London’s historical and physical development to life.
At 12.5 metres-long, the model covers more than 85 square kilometres of London, 19 Boroughs and approximately 170,000 buildings, including 34km of the Thames with its corresponding 21 bridges. It extends from King’s Cross in the north to Peckham in the south and the Royal Docks in the east to Old Oak Common in the west and it includes a brand new extension of Wembley.
All talks take place from 12:30 - 13:00, register now:
