A lettering walk around London’s Smithfield and St Bart’s

This Friday, Professor Phil Baines and Dr Catherine Dixon of Central Saint Martins will lead a walking tour of public lettering sites around London’s Smithfield and St Bart’s…

As part of the Winter Walking Weekend series of brief tours taking place across the capital and organised by The Cultural Capital Exchange, Baines and Dixon are inviting walkers to join them in exploring the typography of the area around Smithfield market.

Smithfield is an area dense with examples, say the organisers. “From small scale architects’ dedications at St Bart’s, to grandiose naming by the Port of London Authority there is much to see, admire, and discuss.”

The walk will take in the streets surrounding Smithfield market – including St Bart’s – and starts and finishes at Farringdon Underground station (meet there at 2pm on Friday 28).

Tickets are £8 and available here. The walk lasts approximately an hour and a half. The full program of walks is here.
