As part of Open House London some of Redbridge’s most impressive architectural treasures will be free to visit this whole weekend.

Residents will be able to see inside the Redbridge Town Hall council chambers, in High Road, Ilford, a Grade II listed building in the Renaissance style.

Also open is the Ilford War Memorial Hall, in Eastern Avenue, Newbury Park, where all of the names of the borough’s soldiers who died during the First World War are recorded.

In Wanstead the Sukkat Shalom Reform Synagogue, in Hermon Hill, is free to enter, a 19th century building that started off as a merchant seaman’s orphan asylum chapel.

Open House was started in 1992 and hopes to make London’s best buildings available for the general public who might not otherwise have access.

The not-for-profit organisation wishes to draw attention to the value that these buildings bring to the community.

Some events must be pre-booked and for full details of opening hours and events visit
