Welcome to England’s largest festival of history and culture – Heritage Open Days 2024!

Heritage Open Days is England’s largest festival of history and culture, involving thousands of local volunteers and organisations. Every year in September it brings people together to celebrate their heritage, community and history. Stories are told, traditions explored, and histories brought to life. It’s your chance to see hidden places and try out new experiences – and it’s all FREE.

Expect fascinating talks, guided tours around some lesser seen spots, free to visit historical buildings and much more.
