Open House London is a rare opportunity to see inside some of London’s most interesting buildings. It’s on this weekend. Some buildings require tickets or email requests to enter, but many are first-come-first-served. Such as the amazing looking Boone’s Chapel built in 1682 on Lee High Road, which I hope to check out this weekend! Great photo set here by @darryl1974 showing the interior.
Lewisham’s Open Houses.
Greenwich Open Houses (Severndroog Castle is a great option). My sightseeing trip from 2008 is now out of date since the renovations. The Quaker Meeting House in Blackheath, or Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich are also good options.

UPDATE: it’s not this weekend- sorry! (thanks to Ben for spotting the mistake)
Part of the Open House weekend – a walk through Blackheath Park – it’s on Saturday & Sunday 18th-19th September
Blackheath Park from End to End
Blackheath Park is a three-quarters of a mile long thoroughfare of boulevard proportions containing a wide range of architectural forms from 1818 until the present day with Span houses and listed houses and is at the heart of one of London’s first conservation areas. The Park is at the centre of a community of exceptional quality known to its residents since the early 19C as the Blackheath Cator Estate.
Address Meet: Sat/Sun 10.30am at Forecourt, Blackheath Concert Hall, 23 Lee Road SE3 9RQ
