Open House London 2018

Listings with best views (continuously updated)

Hi guys, it’s that time again - Open House London 2018 weekend 22-23rd September. With first pre-ordered booklets appearing in post, and with thanks to a friend of mine Shaul ( @shaul_k on insta) it’s time to start the research on where to go and what to book in time to get to the best places over the two fun packed days. I dropped the ball this year, was quite busy and didn’t pre-order the book but Shaul came to the rescue and started sharing screenshots of pages with me and here’s the few interesting listing that have or potentially might have , great views of the city and skyline.

This post will be getting updated as and when I find any more worthy listings to include here. If you got the booklet or know any great spots not to be missed here, comment or DM on insta @LondonViewpoints
