Gingerbread City at the Museum of Architecture

£15.00 (advance sales)£16.00 (on the door)

Prepare to be a weird combination of inspired, envious and hungry at this year’s Gingerbread city, held by the Museum of Architecture and filled with incr-edible displays (see what we did there?).

This year’s exhibition is split into five smaller (but still delicious) cities, each in a different climate zone: Polar, Continental, Temperate, Dry and Tropical. More than 100 architects, designers, engineers and landscape architects will illustrate why we need to think differently about how we build around the world, taking into account local resources, building methods and the environment in order to act on the climate crisis.

Entry tickets cost £15.00 for adults and £10.00 for under 12s. Kids under three are free. Tickets can be bought on the door for a £1 surcharge or booked online. Buying the tickets online means divulging a fair amount of your personal information so, unless you’re going for a workshop, there’s no real reason not to just turn up and save yourself the hassle.

Workshops at the Gingerbread City

Somerset House Gingerbread
The gingerbread workshops are your opportunity to get involved in the gingerbread city yourself, and include everything you’ll need to create your very own on-trend gingerbread house with solar panels and green roof. Family tickets cost £50.00. Confusingly, they only include one adult and one child; you can buy a ticket for £10.00 to add an extra child OR an extra adult (not both, sorry nuclear families) sharing the same kit, which includes additional decorating items.

Workshops run daily (excluding Christmas and Boxing Day). Each Session lasts an hour and a half, starting from 10:30am until 4:30pm. There’s also an adults-only evening session which starts at 6 pm. Please note that workshop tickets do NOT include entry to the exhibition.

Organisers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
