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 800 of the city's sites and buildings. There's a wealth of architectural gems to choose from, typically including old favourites like City Hall, 10 Downing Street and the BT Tower as well as City of London icons, the Cheesegrater and 'The Gherkin'. 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. This year's full programme goes live on 20th August and once booked in you're advised to bring booking confirmation with you.
