Open House LondonOne weekend a year we get to go behind doors which are, for the rest of the year, closed to the public and see inside London's architectural landmarks. The fantastic, free Open House London allows access to more than 850 of the city's sites and buildings - including London landmarks like 'The Gherkin', Lloyd's of London, Battersea Power Station, The View from the Shard and the Bank of England. There's a wealth of architectural gems to choose from including some of the most beautiful buildings - old and new like the Canary Wharf Crossrail Station. You can also get inside some of the grandest private homes in your own neighbourhood - it's a voyeur's dream come true. For the more serious students of contemporary design, this is a chance to visit spaces by famous modern architects, some of whom give talks and tours of the buildings they've designed. Entry to some houses is only permitted via pre-booked tickets acquired through the website www.londonopenhouse.org. You're advised to bring booking confirmation with you.
