London Open House WeekendFor one weekend a year many of London's architectural landmarks open their doors offering us a glimpse behind doors which are, for the rest of the year, closed to the public. The hugely popular London Open House Weekend opens more than 800 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 - in this fantastic, free yearly event, now in its 22nd year. There's a wealth of architectural gems to choose from including some of the most beautiful buildings - old and new - in the city. 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. An inspired idea and a real treat whether you're a lover of architecture or just plain nosy. Entry to some of the houses is only permitted via pre-booked tickets acquired through the website www.londonopenhouse.org. You're advised to bring booking confirmation with you.

About Bank of England Museum

Sorry, no free samples here but you can get your hands on a real gold bar. Housed within the Bank of England, the Bank of England Museum traces the history of the bank from its foundation by Royal Charter in 1694 to its role today as the nation's central bank. More about Bank of England Museum
