HM Treasury Open House Weekend London

An annual weekend dedicated to buildings and the amazing architecture in the capital? Count us in! This weekend Open House is back for its 21st year and is giving you access to buildings you might otherwise not be able to access.

Hundreds of buildings are opening their doors including Battersea Power Station, the Lloyd’s of London building and the Bank of England, but how about starting your weekend a little closer to home? We round-up the best places to visit North London this weekend.

Ruach Ministries Christian Centre (former Gaumont State Cinema)

197-199 Kilburn High Road

Start your weekend in Kilburn with a visit to what was once the largest cine-variety theatre in England. Built in 1937 and designed by George Coles, it’s a Grade II* listed building with an Italian Renaissance-style interior and original Wurlitzer theatre pipe organ.

Saturday 10am-5pm

South Kilburn Studios

2a Canterbury Road

Built in 2011 South Kilburn Studios is a series of studio spaces available to those in the creative industries. Instead of paying rent, tenants agree to train a local young person instead.

Saturday and Sunday 1pm-5pm

The Tin Tabernacle / Cambridge Hall

12-16 Cambridge Avenue

Built in 1863, this Victorian corrugated iron chapel was transformed after the last war into a ship. Local people decked it out with decks, portholes, bridge and a bofors gun. It’s been described as ‘a unique combination of the work of local people and Victorian industrial practicality that is aesthetically thrilling’.

Saturday and Sunday 1pm-5pm

Underground Bunker

Brook Road, Neasden

The original 1940s underground bunker used during WWII by Winston Churchill and the Cabinet.

The site was sold over 30 years ago, but planning permission was conditional on public access twice a year to the bunker.

Saturday 8am-5pm – you must pre-book by email
