▶ BUILD YOUR ITINERARY
Plan your Open House weekend with the popular My Itinerary feature. Each listing is accompanied with transport information such as nearest Tube, Rail or Buses. And if you don’t know where to start (there are over 730 listings after all!), we have a specially curated set of “Picks” for inspirations.
▶ NO WI-FI OR 3G NEEDED
See listing information and your itinerary even when you have poor signals or traveling on the underground. Once the initial guide information is downloaded (during first installation), internet is not needed for the App to work. And if you do have internet, you’ll be to see building photos as well as map information.
▶ GET BEHIND THE SCENE
Want to see more than just what the buildings look like? Want to hear from the architects their design philosophy behind some of London’s most iconic features? Many listings provide guided tours and some even taken by the architects who designed the buildings! Just make sure you are there early as most tours has limited spaces.
▶ FULLY SEARCHABLE LISTING (YES, OFFLINE!)
Want to see buildings from your favourite architects? Fascinated by buildings from particular historic period? Just want to see buildings near you? Or only buildings that are open on Saturday? You can do all this with the ever present search button. Best of all, you won’t need internet to do this (after initial download), so you can easily change plans while stuck on the underground!
▶ GET FREE LISTING UPDATES
Don’t get caught out with listing changes. The App automatically checks for changes to listing information so you are always up-to-date.
▶ SUPPORT OPEN HOUSE
Proceeds from the App goes directly in supporting Open City and the development of the App series.
▶ ABOUT OPEN HOUSE
Open House London is a simple but powerful concept: hundreds of great buildings of all types and periods opened up their doors to all, completely for FREE. It is a truly city-wide celebration of the buildings, places and neighbourhoods where we live, work and play, and a quarter of a million people take the opportunity to get out and get under the skin of London's amazing architecture.
The dates for 2016 are 17 & 18 September.
Don't even bother
Bought this because the website doesn't work beyond page 1. App doesn't even load. Money back please.
Great weekend very poor app
This is a surprisingly poor app. Although it claims to rely on location services (and I checked they were enabled) clicking on 'near me' just produced the same list of quite distant sights regardless of where I was. The map showing buildings is also very poor - showing some houses in completely the wrong place (e.g. The Thames Water Building on Rosebery Ave). The app was no better than the book and was an utterly pointless purchase.
Easy to use
An excellent app to take with you on Open House weekend. (Mine's on an iPad.) I hope they put out another one next year. Easy to use. Can quickly create your own itinerary by borough, type etc. Helpful map drawn up as you build up your itinerary. Highly recommended.
