Each month we choose one London event above the rest that we think is well worth a visit for any guests staying at The Westbridge Hotel. For September we have chosen Open House London.
What is Open House London about?
It is a celebration of architecture, a dedicated festival that makes the most amazing spaces in London accessible to the general public. The aim is to inspire people with guided walks, talks, tours, and activities in a huge range of public and private spaces.
Which Buildings can I visit during Open House London?
Amongst the 800+ places open to the public will be homes of the rich and famous, public buildings, churches, museums, private homes, skyscrapers, schools and offices. The list changes every year but usually includes BT Tower, The Gherkin and The Royal Albert Hall – the full list for 2019 can be found here, and we can see already that it includes prestigious addresses such as 10 Downing Street!
If you rather stay fairly local, we suggest visiting at least one of the following buildings:

West Ham Station Ticket Hall
Three Mill Lane, Bromley by Bow, E3 3DU
Bow Church – St Mary

When is Open House London taking place?
Spaces will be open, and events will take place, on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd September 2019, so do plan in advance what you want to see – especially as the 800+ locations are over 30 of London’s boroughs!
How much is Open House London?
It’s free! But be aware that some places need to be booked in advance, and some are only available to view via a ballot. Most places, however, are open to those that turn up on the day.
