Heritage Open Days

Heritage Open DaysA once-a-year chance to discover architectural treasures and enjoy a wide range of tours, events and activities that bring local history and culture to life for free!

Heritage Open Days celebrates England’s architecture and culture by allowing visitors free access to interesting properties that are either not usually open, or would normally charge an entrance fee. It also includes tours, events and activities that focus on and celebrate the local heritage of the area. Heritage Open Days is England’s biggest and most popular voluntary cultural event and is also held in a further 48 countries across Europe.

Since 1994 the Heritage Lincolnshire has co-ordinated Heritage Open Days within the county. So far there have been over 1,000 events in the 21 years that we’ve been managing the programme!

In 2015 Lincolnshire’s Heritage Open Days attracted over 2,000 visitors to its 125 free events. Over 500 volunteers and 90 staff helped to make the 2015 programme a great success.

This year the theme for Lincolnshire Heritage Open Days 2016 will be 'Natural Lincolnshire'. If your organisation, group or school would like to be involved drop us a line at hod@heritagelincolnshire.org
