Open House this weekend

Open House weekend is here again!

This is often your one opportunity in a year to gain access to some of London's amazing buildings for free!
With over 800 buildings, walks and architects's talks, this weekend is a real treat for any lover of London.

With so much choice how do you choose what to see? Well, I would suggest you focus on where you really want to see within a small area.

Southwark
City Hall - office of Boris Johnson, Mayor of London, the GLA and London Assembly
London Fire Brigade Museum - Georgian 

Clerkenwell

Whitehall
26 Whitehall and Admiralty House - this 1725 building has been used to determine the strategy and the tactics of the Royal Navy since its first occupation. 
Banqueting House - built in 1619, look up at the ceiling!
Foreign & Commonwealth Office - see Victorian grandeur including the Durbar Hall

The City
Apothecaries' Hall - 17th century livery hall. Come along to our Best of Blackfriars walk to learn more.
'Unilever' House - Both old and new


New River Head


Make sure you are prepared for all weathers and queues (I have a few snacks and a bottle of water in my handbag to carry me through the day). What ever you choose to visit I hope you enjoy it!
