Protecting historical London.

Our city is home to some of the most outstanding historic, archaeological and architectural sites of interest in the world – and we care deeply about them.

What do we do?

Safeguarding yesterday's treasures for the next generation

London is a breath-taking city, where modernity and history meet. We are proud to serve in such an architecturally rich environment, which reflects the rich history of our city.

However, London Fire Brigade knows that because of their construction and layout, fires in these buildings can spread more quickly. The Brigade will continue to engage with Historic England and other relevant heritage stakeholders to identify risk and to provide fire prevention advice, support and guidance in relation to salvage plans.

Sharing our own history

The London Fire Brigade Museum

We are also proud to care for an exceptional collection of historical artefacts that tell the story of firefighting and firefighters from the past. From The Great Fire of London to objects used to fight fires, the early Brigades to fires that changed history, there's much to explore on our Museum pages.
