Heritage Open Days

Heritage Open Days celebrate England’s fantastic historic architecture and culture by offering FREE access to properties which are usually closed to the public or normally charge for admission.

Every year on four days in September, there’s a chance to discover architectural treasures and enjoy FREE access to a wide range of events and activities which bring local history and culture to life.

Gloucester’s events, organised by Gloucester Civic Trust , feature over 120 events, from the opportunity to see inside the Kings’s Bastion to viewing the inside one of the best examples of a Tudor Merchant’s house in the country.  The city is among the top three venues in the country with its huge range of activities during Heritage Open Days with guided tours , music and cultural activities in the City Centre, at Gloucester Docks and in the city’s suburbs.
