Many reasons to LOVE London, here's one of my favourite!
In its 26th year of celebrating some of the city's best loved, most iconic/historic/jaw-droppingly ornate/headily modern pieces of architecture FREE over a weekend in June - with walks, talks, tours and more from top historians, architects, planners and glib talkers!
What's not to These are usually buildings/spaces that are therwise out of bounds to visitors - because they may be private residences, may be sensitive areas due to security implications, could be SO old and crumbly that they're a threat to Health and Safety etc. ( makes Open House even more special ! )
My first taste of this, discovering Highgate's Historic Art Deco Highrise 10 years ago, maintained to perfection ( and IF EVER on the market today, for eye-watering prices! ) Back in the day, in 1926 it was the last word in Luxury Flats with a heated swimming pool on the rooftop! #art #architecture #city #london #openhouse #walks #talks #tours #june #weekend
