Heritage Open Days Highlights - Our Pick of the UK’s largest celebration of Britain’s heritage

Posted on August 17, 2015 by David

We present a series of regional guides to the 2015 Heritage Open Days - the UK's largest celebration of Britain's heritage.

The cells that were once used to hold the ‘ring-leaders’ of one of the Country’s earliest unions, a lovingly-restored group of Victorian detached gardens, and an Arts and Craft Church complete with William Morris-designed stained glass are just three of the stunning heritage attractions that will open up during the UK’s biggest celebration of British Heritage.

Every year since 1994, the Heritage Open Days has provided free access to thousands of heritage sites across the UK. These are places that either normally charge for admission or are not normally open to the public. The 2015 event takes place from 10 to 13 September 2015 and will see over 1,500 local organisations involved in the planning and running of the events. The event is incredibly popular, last year it’s estimated that over 3 million visitors attended during the four day festival.

With so much on offer it can be difficult to narrow down your choices and come up with a manageable itinerary. So we’ve done the homework for you (please, there’s no need to thank us!) and drawn up suggested itineraries for four different parts of the country. So, why not grab yourself a cuppa and browse our handy guides to the Heritage Open Days in Greater Manchester, Cheshire, Dorset & Warwickshire. Click on any of the picture below to start.
