Transforming places for local people.

We work to find innovative and sustainable ways to bring new life to London’s historic buildings, supporting local regeneration and helping communities thrive. 

The London Historic Buildings Trust was set up in 1992 as the Heritage of London Trust Operations Ltd (HOLTOP) and was rebranded in 2019. We’re the only London-wide building preservation trust.

'HOW TO' Training - all recordings available now

Throughout 2022/23 we delivered a 10-part training programme of short (45-minute), focused information and advice sessions introducing a particular element of a heritage project. These sessions were aimed at groups or organisations new to heritage projects, but were also relevant for those who already have experience. 

These sessions were recorded, and each can now be accessed online along with a pdf of every presentation.
