See inside iconic London buildings usually off-limits to the public

LONDON, September 10, 2014 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- ‘Revealing' is the theme of Open House London in 2014, the hugely popular free annual event opportunity which gives visitors to London the opportunity to see inside over 800 buildings, both public and private. For visitors coming to the city for the weekend of 20th & 21st September 2014, there are many hotels in London to choose from, including plenty of stylish designer and boutique hotels.

The Leadenhall Building, designed by Rogers Stirk Harbour +Partners, affectionately known as ‘The Cheesegrater', Crossrail Construction Sites at Farringdon and Moorgate, and Antony Gormley's Room at the not-yet-opened Beaumont Hotel are among the highlights of the in 2014.

Four buildings – 10 Downing Street, EDF Energy London Eye, Gray's Inn and Room by Antony Gormley at the Beaumont Hotel – are available by public ballot but the majority of the other buildings operate on a first come, first served policy so anyone can see inside iconic London buildings like the 'Gherkin' and BBC Television Centre, before its redevelopment, if they're prepared to queue.

New entries for 2014 include the Saw Swee Hock Student Centre at the London School of Economics designed by Architects O'Donnell + Tuomey, JW3 designed by Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands architects at the Jewish Community Centre London, The Tree House by 6a Architects, and Rambert dance company's South Bank headquarters, designed by Allies and Morrison.

Buildings both public and private, big and small take part, from the Writer's Shed at the bottom of the garden in east London to well-known architectural gems like Erno Goldfinger's unique Modernist home, 2 Willow Road in Hampstead.

For more information on these and other events beginning in September 2014 go to LondonTown.com where a wide choice of London hotels to suit all budgets, information on restaurants, bars and cafes as well as all the major attractions is provided.
