About the blue plaques scheme

The London blue plaques scheme – administered by English Heritage since 1986 – has been running for nearly 150 years and is thought to be the oldest of its kind in the world.

In a unique way, plaques bring buildings to life, showing us the places where important people in history lived and worked, demonstrating the capital’s remarkable historical significance, and uniting the past and the present.

This section provides information on the history of the scheme.
