In addition to the historic street plan of the City and a number of heritage assets this 1:500 scale model of the city features all buildings that currently have planning permission which gives you a sneak peak at the City's future skyline.

Model talks are available for groups of 8 or more and can be booked by contacting or calling +44 (0)207 6008 362.

*Please note that on certain Fridays due to private events and school bookings access to The City Model may be limited. Please contact a member of staff before your visit to avoid disappointment.
