Explore some of London’s great architecture and design at the Open House Festival. Visit some of London’s most iconic buildings and unique spaces when the city opens its doors to the public in the autumn.

Step into a world normally closed to the public at the Open House Festival 2022 (8-21 September). This is a brilliant opportunity to discover London’s most remarkable buildings and neighbourhoods. In recent years, the event has offered free access to over 800 churches, museums, public buildings and private houses.

Past highlights  have included Custom House and the Brutalist Balfron Tower, designed by Erno Goldfinger. Or perhaps you like the idea of dropping into 10 Downing Street?

In previous years, a public ballot allocates the most in-demand tickets and you also need to book in advance for around 100+ other venues. Visit Open House London for full details of the 2022 event.
