Time Out Says

After spending so long in our own houses, the chance to look around someone else’s is pretty appealing. Like everything this year, Open House – the hugely popular, capital-wide annual festival of architecture that lets you mosey around buildings usually closed to the public – is a little different in 2020. Some events have gone online, many tours are self-guided, but there’ll still be some buildings open to visitors.

For the IRL Open House: take a tour of a community garden led by members of Extinction Rebellion, visit Brixton Windmill or take a tour of Fitzrovia Chapel

For the online part, you can snoop around Her Majesty’s Treasury, have a walk around private homes, and check out London spaces that have featured in songs for special event ‘The Video Bar’.
