Imperial College London

Aerobics for Archivists – Reach for the sky at Imperial College

This is an unusual one, inspired by the posters on the underground for Vertical Rush, a race up the stairwells of a city skyscraper in aid of Shelter (see www.shelter.org.uk/verticalrush) .At January’s seminar, passing mention was made of the fact that Imperial College’s Queen’s Tower is all that remains of the former Imperial Institute. Today, we will climb it. 
 
There are 324 steps to the top, some of which are in narrow spiral staircases, and no lifts. People need to know this before they book(!) Architectural features to admire on the ascent include medallions of scientists, stained glass windows, and structural details, not least being the belfry – the bells will have been rung for an hour three days previously for the Queen’s Birthday. Don’t forget your camera to record the stunning views.
