SATURDAY/SUNDAY OPEN HOUSE SOUTHWARK 2018

There’s a raft of events across the five boroughs this weekend as part of Open House 2018 including the opening up of both Crystal Palace Subway and Kingswood House.

Open House London is the world’s largest architecture festival, giving free public access to 800+ buildings, walks, talks and tours over one weekend in September each year.

Organisers say they believe the best cities arise when an informed and diverse public play an active role in shaping and maintaining the neighbourhoods they live in. We’re in this game for a very simple reason: because we love cities and we love London. And because we believe that great design – in architecture, urban design, planning and infrastructure – can transform the lives of ordinary people for the better.

In Bromley there’s an HG Wells walk while you can follow in Ziggy’s Footsteps in a walking tour of David Bowie’s Beckenham.

In Croydon there’s Shirley windmill and the Stanley halls at South Norwood to explore (along with Thornton Heath library (!).

In Lambeth the demolition-threatened Cressingham Gardens estate at Tulse Hill is open for viewing along with Brixton windmill, the Kennington Oval (Kia Oval) cricket ground;  Mrs Custard’s House; South London Botanical Institute; Waterloo City Farm and West Norwood cemetery.

Lewisham has the Lewisham Arthouse and the Master Shipwright’s House.

Southwark has a lengthy list of buildings open including the Brunel museum; Canada Water Library; King’s College London: Museum of Life Sciences; Sands Films Studios & Rotherhithe Picture Research Library; Small Beer Brewery; South London Gallery; and the Southwark Integrated Waste Management Facility.

Further afield there’s the former Granada cinema, Tooting – now a Gala bingo club (London borough of Wandsworth).
