Walking Tour: Southbank Centre Trees

Part of Among the Trees

Discover fascinating stories behind urban trees on this leafy walking tour with writer Paul Wood.

A diverse range of trees grow in the heart of London. Just like the city’s human inhabitants, they come from all over the world.

Find out how to tell a London plane from a honey locust, and a Himalayan birch from a one-leaved ash, on this tour.

Paul Wood is the author of London Is a Forest (2019) and London’s Street Trees (2017).

In partnership with the Urban Tree Festival (16 – 24 May 2020).
