King's opens its doors to Open House
Posted on 19/07/2018
King’s will open its doors for the London-wide Open House weekend on 23 and 24 September 2018, with many of the university’s arts and cultural venues featured within the programme, including the Archaeology Room, the Old Operating Theatre on Guy’s campus and the Museum of Life Sciences, alongside King’s Chapel, the ‘Roman’ Bath on Strand Lane and Bush House.
During the event Professor Michael Trapp from the Department of Classics at King’s will join Somerset House guides to lead tours of the ‘hidden traces’ of the original Tudor Somerset House.
Open House gives a unique opportunity to explore and learn about the city’s most compelling architecture and design over one weekend. More than 800 buildings of all kinds open their doors on 22 and 23 September, alongside a diverse programme of free neighbourhood walks and architect-led tours.
Other highlights include major new London landmarks including the U.S. Embassy, the renovation of the Royal Opera House and Bloomberg’s new HQ. Returning are favourites such as the Waiting Rooms at Peckham Rye Station, 10 Downing Street, BT Tower and the Shard. Also returning this year is Open House Families, a weekend of activities and events for children and teenagers at City Hall.
