London’s first skyscraper.

Considered radical and offensive when unveiled in 1929, this Grade I listed structure is now a marvel of Art Deco London. The former headquarters for London Underground, its hosts 14 stories of beautifully detailed offices, grand meetings rooms, and these stunning rooftops views.

Old waiting room at Peckham Rye Station.
Once considered to be one of the grandest station waiting rooms in south London, but for decades the space at Peckham Rye railway station was bricked up and forgotten about. The Old Waiting Room was designed by Charles Henry Driver as part of Peckham Rye Station when it opened in 1865. 
After falling out of use for passengers it became a Billiard Hall in the 1920s, finally closing its doors in 1962.
