27 Incredible Photos Of Open House London 2019

Ah, Open House. Our favourite weekend of the year. The we get to go into buildings, on roofs and behind the scenes at places often off-limits. Team Londonist was out in force for Open House 2019, and despite a solid effort, we only managed to visit a fraction of the Open House venues. Here are some of our favourite snaps:

For @openhouselondon today we're at the magnificent Crystal Palace Subway. Once an entrance to the Crystal Palace for posh punters, it's since been everything from a bomb shelter to the setting for a Chemical Brothers video
