Your chance to look inside iconic buildings
Some of the borough’s most iconic buildings will be throwing open their doors this weekend as part of the Open House London event.
The BAC, Tooting's Gala Bingo Hall, Roehampton University and Tooting Bec Lido will all be open to the public. Lesser known venues include the Hanging Bathroom of Balham - a tiny bathroom and garden transformed by the clever design of a projected bathroom and decked garden.
More than 750 buildings across the capital will be open during the event, now in its 20th year. This year' theme is the Changing Face of London, looking at how the built environment is evolving.
