Open Weekend at City Hall

This weekend is one of a selected few when London's City Hall gets opened up to the public. Home to the GLA and dear Ken since 2002, opinion on the asthetic pleasure of the buliding is always under discussion. We think it's pretty snazzy and hear the view across London from the top is pretty spectactular even if they have rather pretentiously named the top floor 'London's living room'.

Opening between 10 and 5pm on both Saturday and Sunday, we are definatley going for a nosy round. You'll be able to visit the chamber rooms and the 'living room' and see the Mayor's conference rooms and offices from a staircase.

Most excitingly you'll be able to visit the bottom floor - home to the London PhotoMap. Made up of 200,000 photos taken from above, this is a detailed aerial view of the whole of Greater London. Man, this is like a live action role player, who really likes google maps, dream! They even let you stand and run about on the damn thing!

We are geeky and excited. You should be too! Last entry is at 4.30 on each day, so don't miss out.
