The Open House London weekend, now in its 22nd year, is again coming to the capital on 20-21 September, offering the opportunity to see inside over 800 outstanding examples of contemporary and historic buildings across 30 London boroughs.
ICE London is partnering with Open House London for the fourth year running to showcase the capital’s civil engineering and infrastructure.
It is running two 90-minute engineering heritage boat tours on 20 September at 11am and 1pm.
