London Heritage Council

Giving a voice to our past.


Our mission is simple - to bring Londoners together to celebrate our shared stories.

Londoners have saved lives, explored space, and changed the world. Our museums and heritage organizations share these amazing stories, showing why the past is very much alive in our present.


Why does heritage matter?

Culture is a $540,000,000 industry in London. Museums and heritage sites educate, inspire, and give Londoners new reasons to love their community. The London Heritage Council exists to help cultural and heritage organizations to find new, innovative ways of connecting with their community. Check out the information below to explore the impact that culture and heritage have in the London region.
