The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (London Open House Weekend Saturday) [Sep. 23rd, 2014|06:49 pm]
[Tags|, ]

Saturday 20th September (7)
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office , that visit wasn’t planned but we couldn’t get into British academy tour and we still had a bit of time before it all closed so before going to the pub and resto we decided to fit one more visit.  Especially as  simon hadn’t been  and I think it is one of the most breath-taking places to visit on open house.
Gothic revival meet Spain and India, filled with gold, frills, marble, courtyard, murals, plasterwork…just so so so nice. Grade I listed Victorian government office buildings. Former India Office includes the magnificently decorated Durbar Court.
