Mathematical Walks

Our cities are filled with buildings, roads, cars, buses, trains, bikes, parks and gardens. They are crisscrossed with power, water, sewage and transport systems. They are built by engineers, architects, planners, technologists, doctors, designers and artists. Our cities are shaped by our environment, our society and our culture. And each and every part is built on mathematics.

These pages contain two walking tours of Oxford and London that explore some of the mathematical features in the cityscape. Please print the guides to conduct your own tour, or check back here to see when we are next advertising guided tours.
