The Open House London weekend returns to the capital on the 19 to 20 September.
Now in its 23rd year, Open House offers the public the opportunity to see inside over 700 outstanding examples of contemporary and historic buildings across London.
ICE London is partnering with Open House London for the fifth year running to showcase the capital’s civil engineering and infrastructure and raise awareness of civil engineering to the public.
It is running two 90-minute boat tours of London’s Engineering Heritage on Saturday 19 September at 11am and 1pm, with live commentary from Thames Water head of tideway tunnels Phil Stride, Thames Tideway Tunnel and engineering historian Mike Chrimes.
There will also be cycle tours of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on Sunday 20 September at 2pm with Andrew Weir of Expedition Engineering, and architect Kay Hughes of Khaa. The tour will examine the Park’s enabling works, how the venues were and their supporting infrastructure were built.
Other civil engineering highlights on this year’s programme include opportunities to tour the Thames Barrier and information centre, Crossrail’s Farringdon construction site and St Pancras International.
