We are very excited to see that the doors of many iconic buildings will open to the public this autumn as part of Open House London, on the weekend 17 -18 September.
The project started in 1992 as a small, not for profit organisation to promote public awareness and appreciation of the capital's building design and architecture.
Core to the beliefs of the group is having direct experience, to be actually engaged with the buildings and spaces, not just looking at photos or illustrations.
Click on the link and you will be directed to the online listing, where you will find an extensive programme of talks and tours of some of London's fantastic buildings:
You could explore the award winning 30 St Mary Axe, (The Gherkin) London's first ecological tall building designed by Foster & Partners, Apothecaries Hall, the oldest Livery Company hall dating back to 1672, the Highwalks of the Barbican or even the Bank of England.
These are just a few that are on our doorstep, that we pass by all the time, but never have the opportunity to venture in to. We've selected just a few, but there are 750 sites and events in total.
