Crystal Palace Subway: much is written about the Palace, destroyed by fire in 1936. Less so about the station and the subway that was created to connect people to the Palace. A beautiful relic of the Victorian era ..a little away from the centre of London, but definitely worth the trip: photo credit @_rebeccajames

St Paul’s Cathedral: OpenHouseLondon allows access to the triforium level of the cathedral. Designed by Sir Christopher Wren, the library's collection was almost completely destroyed in the Great Fire of London.  Wren's library chamber was restocked by the Commissioners for rebuilding St Paul's: they bought collections, including valuable Bibles and liturgical texts

One Bishops Square: Always a massive favourite with architectural fans. This marvel eco building is also a treasure trove of lookups, reflections, symmetry and cityscape views. It has the largest office based solar installation and largest in-built computer system aimed and energy efficiencies. Lights & air conditioning only operating when an area is populated. The 3 roof terraces offer views across the city.

Inside Woolwich Town Hall, a great example of civic architecture of the time belonging to the Classical tradition rather than the Gothic Revival favoured outside London.

London’s first skyscraper.

Considered radical and offensive when unveiled in 1929, this Grade I listed structure is now a marvel of Art Deco London. The former headquarters for London Underground, its hosts 14 stories of beautifully detailed offices, grand meetings rooms, and these stunning rooftops views.
