Ever fancied a snoop around the Prime Minister’s pad? Well, now could be your golden opportunity.
In a celebration of London’s unique and world-famed architecture, for one weekend only, this September, the public will get the chance to see behind the doors of some of the Capital’s most iconic buildings, places and hidden spaces.
From 17-18 September, the Open-City organisation is inviting visitors to explore more than 800 iconic sites including landmarks, historic sites, stately homes, churches, terraces and skylines – many of which the public do not normally have access to. And the best part? Almost all of the events – including guided tours and architectural debates- are totally free!
Some of the highlights will include: guided tours of 10 Downing Street, The ‘Gherkin’, A View from The Shard, the Bank of England and the Queen Elizabeth II Stadium.
Held once every year, the Open House London is the Capital’s largest festival of design and architecture, designed to give visitors an appreciation of the diverse and fascinating architecture and building design throughout the city.
