Unconventional. Unbelievable. Unforgettable.

Doors Open London 2017 was a success, with over 20,000 people visiting 40 sites over two days. Thank you to London Life Insurance Company, the City of London, Government of Canada's Building Communities Through Arts and Heritage program, and the London Transit Commission for your support. Thank you to all of the sites who participated, all of the people who worked hard to put on interactive activities, all our volunteers, and, of course, thank you to everyone who visited! See you again next year!
Over 40 heritage buildings, museums, and London treasures opened their doors to the community and give Londoners never-before-seen glances into our community's past.
