The Landmark Society and Amas Musical Theatre present an Architecture and Theatre Travel Tour of London. London is known for its theatrical scene as well as its iconic architecture, so why not experience both on The Landmark Society’s upcoming travel tour to London, October 28 – November 4, 2016? We are partnering with Amas Musical Theatre in New York City to benefit from their connections with the West End theatre community. Executive Director, Wayne Goodman, and The Landmark Society staff have put together a tour that highlights the architectural icons that London is famous for and a few hidden gems that may be unknown to the average traveler. Registration deadline is August 22, 2016.

Inside Downtown Tour comes to St. Paul Quarter


The Inside Downtown Tour opens up urban environments where people are creating exciting spaces to live and work. We visit re-purposed spaces, renovated homes, lovingly preserved places, and newly built sites that are designed with sensitivity to the overall built environment. Basically, we get you “in” on the latest urban living trends. And this year we’re getting you in on the latest that Rochester’s historic garment district, the St. Paul Quarter, has to offer. Lofts with a view, new collaborative work spaces, and a family-owned stained glass studio that’s been in business for over 100 years! That’s just a taste of where your Inside Downtown ticket will take you on September 30th and October 1st. Look for more details in our upcoming issue of Landmarks magazine and stay tuned to our website and social media. Online ticket sales open September 1st!

Friday, Sept. 30 & Saturday, Oct. 1 | Advance tickets members: $20  Advance tickets non-members: $26 | Tickets go on sale Sept. 1st | Complete details coming soon!
