Time Out says

The MoA's popular candy paradise is back

The Museum of Architecture’s Gingerbread City exhibition has become one of London’s best Christmas attractions. The sweetest festive event you’ll find, it tasks leading architects and designers to use their building know-house and ditch their conventional building materials for dough bricks and sugar paste mortar. Expect over 70 gingerbread buildings, everything from doughy houses, train stations, markets, museums, schools and parks – making up impressive, tiny biscuit cities. This year the theme is, not-so-festive sounding, ‘Water in Cities’, with all the sugary buildings designed to be water-sensitive. There’ll also be daily gingerbread house-building workshops (£90). Prepare for a feast for the eyes, but resist the urge to nibble! 

Special hours: December 16 to 23: 10am-10pm; December 26: 8am to 10pm; December 27-30: 10am to 10pm; January 1 2024: 12noon to 9pm; January 7: 12noon to 6pm. 


From £12.50
Opening hours:
Mon - Sat: 10am to 9pm, Sun: 12noon to 6pm
