A social event for readers of the Pepys' Diary website.
Every September, hundreds of buildings throughout the city that are normally either closed to the public or charge an admission fee are opened for free — it’s become one of the city’s most popular annual events. This year London Open House weekend is on 15th and 16th September, and details of the places that can be visited will be published in mid-August. No doubt some of them will have a Pepysian connection as, for example, in previous years these have included the Government Treasury Offices on the site where Pepys once lived, the Crypt of the Guildhall which has a stained glass window in his memory, and Trinity House of which he was a director.
It seems a good time to hold the second of our “annual” Pepys meetings, in this case at The Samuel Pepys in Stew Lane, 48 Upper Thames Street, London, from 2pm on Saturday 15th September.
