Open House 2012 – Come Rain or Shine

It was a weekend of two halves.

Queue for the Maughan Library

On an unexpectedly sunny Saturday we had over 400 people visit the Chapel, around 900 visiting the Maughan Library, and people were queueing down the lane to get into the ‘Roman’ Bath. Whilst on site, many visitors also looked into the Inigo Rooms at the John Berger exhibition (‘Arts and Property Now‘) being held by the King’s Cultural Institute and the British Library.




Queueing for the ‘Roman’ Bath



On Sunday, we still had a few hundred brave souls visit each location, despite the downpours. The queues for the bath & library weren’t quite as long as the queue for the Gherkin, but perhaps our visitors preferred to spend their time inside a warm building.



King’s College London Chapel

In total over the weekend we had around 500 visitors to the Chapel, 1200 visitors to the library, and a few hundred managed to squeeze their way into the ‘Roman’ Bath.





Many thanks this year go to Sally Brock, The Revd Tim Ditchfield, and Professor Michael Trapp and all other staff & students for much assistance in opening up the buildings for the weekend.

We’re now looking forward to next year, when we may have some new buildings on the campus to open up. See you then!.
