Every summer since 1962, the City of London Festival has served up a veritable feast of the best in music and the arts. Taking place in some of the City's most beautiful and historic as well as lesser known venues, it promotes the cultural diversity and wide ranging talent of some of the world's leading artists. From world music to jazz, from classical to contemporary, the city of London Festival offers an eclectic mix of musical styles as well as architecture, visual art, film and ever-growing open-air programme.

The Open house London Weekend is a unique initiative organised each September to provide public access, completely free of charge, to all types of buildings, public and private, across the capital. Some 360,000 visits are made each year and are operated on a strictly first come, first serve basis. For the more popular buildings, this can mean long queues, although for some private houses where numbers are very limited (such as Mansion House) an advance booking facility is operated.
