Subject Specific Excursions

Grand Central Terminal

This is a fantastic visit and a must for any visitor to New York! Often inaccurately called Grand Central Station, Grand Central Terminal is a splendid example of a Beaux building and is one of New York’s finest architectural gems.

The Center for Architecture Foundation & Skyscraper Museum

St Mark's Campanile is the bell tower of St Mark's Basilica located in the Piazza San Marco. One of the most recognizable symbols of the city it towers 98.6 metres near the front of Basilica. With a simple form of a fluted brick square shaft and a loggia surrounding the belfry the tower cuts an imposing figure.

Architecture Tour

What better place in the entire world to visit and wonder at countless examples of spectacular architecture than the Big Apple itself. Take in wonders such as the Chrysler Building, Empire State and Grand Central Station, on a guided tour by land, coach or boat. Tours will be fitted around the key locations you want to focus on. Take a poignant visit to Ground Zero, to see an example of the evolving NYC skyline with the recent addition of the new World Trade Centre complex.
