Open House London has established itself in recent years as one of the capital's most popular events. A celebration of the diversity of the London's architecture, the event allows free access to many buildings normally closed to the public.
Open House London 2010 takes this place later this month on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th September, with over 700 buildings participating. A good number of these sites have a link to the collections of the Wellcome Library or to the History of Science and Medicine in general, but we’ll take this opportunity to flag up fellow members of the London Museums of Health and Medicine network which are taking part (details of which are available from their website), the Pioneer Health Centre in Peckham (who we have discussed on this Blog before) and the Royal Society (celebrating its 350th anniversary this year).
And last but by no means least, the Gibbs Building, the headquarters of the Wellcome Trust (shown above) will also be accessible on the Saturday of Open House London weekend.
