UPDATE: ALL PLACES ON OPEN HOUSE TOURS ARE NOW FULLY BOOKED

The London Library is delighted to be participating in Open House London, the capital's largest annual festival of architecture and design. During the weekend of the 19th and 20th September hundreds of buildings will be opening their doors to the public and throughout the day on 19th September The London Library will be conducting guided tours around the main areas of the building. Tours are taking place every hour with the first tour starting at 10am and the last one at 4pm.

Bookings need to be made in advance and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. We regret that we will not be able to accommodate visitors who arrive on the day without a booking.

You can check availability and make bookings on-line but tours book up very quickly as there are only a limited number of places we can offer at any one time.

If you are unlucky this time round, keep an eye out for our Monday evening tours which run roughly once a month. Details can be found at: http://www.londonlibrary.co.uk/about-us/public-tours-events.
