The initiative started in 1992 as a small, not-for-profit organisation to promote public awareness and appreciation of the capital’s building design and architecture.

The city’s most inaccessible museum must surely be The Crime Museum, a macabre collection of evidence and criminal tales which was created in 1875 but has only ever been open to police professionals and invited guests. Now we can all get a glimpse of the gory details, though, as its most fascinating exhibits will be on display at the Museum of London.

 

The Wolfpack

American documentary The Wolfpack centres around a family who homeschooled and raised their seven children in the confinement of their apartment in the Lower East Side of New York City. The film, directed by Crystal Moselle, premiered on January 25, 2015 at the Sundance Film Festival, where it won the U.S. Documentary Grand Jury Prize. It’s perfect viewing for a rainy Autumn day.
