London Open House weekend
Now in its silver anniversary year, Open House London is a city-wide celebration of the buildings, places, and neighbourhoods where we live, work and play.
Open House London ‘opens up’ over 800 historic buildings and hidden gems across the whole city to over a quarter of a million Londoners and visitors to explore for free for one weekend in September.
This year is the first time that creative sheds, artist workspaces and factories will be open to the public along with the hundreds of historic buildings across every borough. There are also loads of walks and tours to bring the buildings alive.
Some of the highlights this year include the BT Tower, Christ Church Spitalfields and St Mary Axe (aka The Gherkin).
