The doors of Bexley's best buildings will be opened to the public for free next weekend as part of a London wide scheme.

15 buildings will be opened up as part of Open House London, which celebrates unique architecture across the capital.

Bexley residents can explore Hall Place, which was built in 1537, or Erith Lighthouse, which was opened only weeks ago.

Councillor Peter Craske, cabinet member for community safety, environment and leisure, said: “Open House London is a brilliant platform for us to showcase some of the borough’s hidden gems. Bexley is bursting with historical and cultural sites; many of which are open all year round.

"During this event, residents and tourists alike will be able to give in to their curious side and have a poke around 15 of the borough’s best buildings absolutely free of charge. It’s another fantastic way to explore Bexley.”

Some of the Open House London events need to be booked in advance, but for most visitors will be able to just turn up on the day.

Open House London runs on September 16 and 17.
