Heritage Open Day was established in the UK in 1994 to raise appreciation for our country’s rich and diverse cultural assets and highlight their need for care and protection. It has since grown into the country’s largest community heritage festival. The simple, yet compelling principle is to throw open the doors to historic monuments and buildings – in particular, those normally closed to the public.

Heritage Open Days are held annually each September with over 5,500 separate events listed in 2021, all reflecting England’s rich and diverse cultural heritage and communities. The festival is a wonderful chance for communities to come together to learn, explore and have fun by sharing the heritage jewels on their doorstep.
