To celebrate Earth Science Week 2014 we’re teaming up with London Walks to provide a geological walking tour of London’s geological heritage.

A city centre might not seem like a likely location for a geological field trip, but London is home to a wealth of exotic stones and clues to our geological past – you just need to know where to look.

Dr Ruth Siddall of UCL will lead a journey through the rocks of Piccadilly, from the granites of Scotland to the marbles of India, travelling through billion of years of geological time. We will find out about the architecture and building stones used on Piccadilly, how they are described and characterised, and the geological processes that have shaped our city.

Details:

Cost £9 - Meet at 10.45am at Green Park Tube Station.

All are welcome to join. No previous knowledge of geology or rock hammers required!
