Tour will be led by VocalEyes Describer Di Langford and Simon Anderson from Canada House.
Canada House has been the centre of Canada’s presence in the UK from the time it was first envisioned by High Commissioner Peter Larkin in 1922. It is an important part of Canadian history in the UK, with a place in the memories of thousands of Canadians.
The audio-described tour will take you on a journey from the Trafalgar Square lobby into the Mackenzie King Room On the ground floor with references to the old Union Club and then up the main stair case with the unique light sculpture to a number of the magnificent meeting rooms in the building with great examples of Canadian furniture and art work.
You will also have the opportunity to visit the Board room and dining space on the top floor named the Sir Wilfrid Laurier Room, a grand space with views over Trafalgar Square, St Martin-in-the-Fields, the National Gallery, Big Ben and the London Eye. Weather permitting there will also be the opportunity to step out on to the garden terrace with its planted green roof and wall again with breath-taking views over Trafalgar Square.
