Open House London 2016

Discover some of Broadgate’s best-known buildings on 17th and 18th September as we throw open our doors for Open House London 2016.

This year Broadgate is hosting 75-90 minute Art Tours from Broadgate Circle, as well as a rooftop tour and behind-the-scenes access to many of Broadgate’s impressive buildings. Admission is free, so what are you waiting for?!

201 Bishopsgate rooftop tour

This striking 12-storey building has won several awards for sustainability and recycling and also boasts a green roof, which looks out on to the impressive London skyline.

The green rooftop, which has been shortlisted for a City in Bloom 2016 award, is one of 12 created by British Land on new buildings to add biodiversity value to urban areas, cut CO2 emissions and promote wellbeing for people working on site and around the area.

This September, Broadgate invites you to take a tour of the 201 Bishopsgate rooftop during Open House London and see the breath-taking views over the capital first-hand.

As access to the rooftop is normally restricted, this tour will show you a side of London that is not experienced by many. Come along between 10am - 4pm on either day of the weekend and prepare to be blown away.

Date: 17th and 18th September 
Time: 10am till 4pm. 
Address: 201 Bishopsgate, London EC2M 3AB
