Today is a great day for a bit of culture in London today. It is the first day of a two day London Open House weekend. The way it works is hundreds of buildings across London and surrounding areas will open their doors to the public for free. You have a chance to see historical buildings that have contributed to the incredible architecture that London has to offer. This is a great day to get some culture and look at the beautiful architecture that makes up some of London’s most famous structures. You can have a great day all for free then continue the day with an evening of sky lantern launching.

Today and Sunday hundreds of buildings have free admission so the public can experience the architecture of the city. There are over 700areas participating. Some include walking architecture tours, architecture discussions or bicycling tours. Admission is free and you can get a PDF of all the buildings available or use modern technology to get around. There is even an iPhone application specifically designed to give you all the information you need about London Open House weekend including what buildings that are participating are nearest to you. Continuing the culture of the day, you can tap into some ancient culture with a modern twist by ending the evening with a launch of sky lanterns.

Sky lanterns have been used for a long time and are rich in history. They have become a staple within London and the UK as a way to celebrate and have fun. Chinese sky lanterns were used during times of warfare in ancient times and then as vehicles for prayer and celebratory items in peace time. Today flying lanterns are used similarly as to those used during peacetime. The design of flying lanterns has not changed much but there have been some improvements. In addition to the classic sky lanterns such as traditional white flying lanterns, that will go perfectly with the classic architecture found in the buildings during Open House in London, you can also use novelty sky lanterns to flow with the more modern architectural findings.

At NightSkyLanterns we have even created the most eco friendly series of products available on the market today. Where most flying lanterns available today contain wire making them hazardous to wildlife and livestock, NightSkyLanterns offers the first full range of flying lanterns that are completely wire free, making then not only biodegradable and save for the environment but safe for animals that may come across them when they fall to the ground also.

London Open House is a great time to soak up the culture that London has to offer. You can peruse hundreds of buildings that have made a mark on architectural history from classic architectural examples to modern architecture. You get all of this for free. This two day even should not be missed. In keeping with the culture of the day, go home and recount the day, relating your favourite buildings amid launching a variety of sky lanterns.
