Open House: Annual Festival of Architecture and Design
Discover the wonders of a London weekend
Each year London celebrates its cornucopia of architecture and design with an ‘open house’ weekend. More than eight hundred buildings across the capital will be revealed to visitors who would otherwise not be able to gain access to these structures. There will also be a series of neighbourhood walks, landscape and engineering tours, cycle ride trails and experts’ talks. Free access and open to all.
Dates: 20th-21st September 2014
Point of interest: St Andrew Undershaft was built in 1532 during the reign of Henry VIII and is unusual in surviving both the Great Fire of London in 1666 and The Blitz during the second world war.
