Heritage Open Days

Heritage Open Days

Heritage Open Days celebrate England’s fantastic architecture and culture by offering free access to properties that are usually closed to the public or normally charge for admission. Properties of every age, type and size in Chester and the Cheshire West area are opened, including churches, schools, halls, historic sites and historic buildings.

It is a once-a-year chance to discover hidden architectural treasures and enjoy a wide range of tours, events and activities which bring to life local history and culture.

As they are free of charge and literally on people’s doorstep Heritage Open Days are for everyone, whatever their background, age and ability.

Co-ordinated nationally by The National Trust, the event thrives on the enthusiasm and expertise of local people. In Cheshire, The Chester Civic Trust and the Council work closely to make it a memorable celebration and incidentally, a contribution to England’s largest voluntary cultural event.

Building owners who would like to include their property in future Heritage Open Days can contact The History Hub @ The Grosvenor Museum
