The London Region is part of our southeast territory (which includes the Southeast Region) and is the smallest of the nine English government regions. We are located within the English Heritage headquarters building in London. We are the Government’s statutory adviser on the historic environment in London. We also have a number of historic properties and sites open to visitors across the capital, ranging from a section of Roman city wall and the medieval Chapter House at Westminster Abbey to the grand houses of Kenwood and Chiswick.
Heritage Counts London
Heritage Counts 2010 provides detailed information on the historic environment in the region. The data spreadsheets and regional summary to be found on the Heritage Counts website offer statistics from the region to the local authority level and give historic environment professionals and the general public a useful overview of the state of the historic environment.
Heritage at Risk in London
In 2010 there were 23 grade I, 64 grade II* and 407 grade II listed building entries at risk in London, along with 40 scheduled monuments, 14 registered parks and gardens and 72 conservation areas. More detail can be found in our Heritage at Risk Register 2010.
To mark the fact that English Heritage has been producing annual "Buildings at Risk" registers for the London region since 1991, we have published "Saving London: 20 Years of Heritage at Risk in the Capital".
