Open house London

This weekend was the annual extravaganza of queuing and building nerderythat is open house London.

I volunteered primarily to get my hands on a coveted queue jumping volunteers badge which I then failed to use as the places I wanted to go didn’t allow their use. Sob!

I must say thought that the Bank of England is really quite superb inside – although it was slightly disappointing, but perhaps unsurprising given the traditional nature of their business that so much of the previous building was simply recreated in the 1920s one.  This contrasts strongly with the other 20s building I visited – United grand lodge of England which was breathtakingly spectacular inside and very much of it’s time not a pastiche of an earlier time.

i took very few photographs but here is a challenge – where did I volunteer?
