Heritage Open Days- This Weekend...

A quick post about a nationwide visiting opportunity this weekend, Heritage Open Days- UK.

I mentioned this to a few writer friends and it was a 50/50 split between those who knew about it and visited place, and those who had not heard about it, so I thought I'd mention it.

In September each year, various museums, private homes and other buildings open their doors to allow the public to visit heritage gems that are not always available to be accessed and seen. Find out how it's brought about.

If you pop along to the website you can search for all the FREE events either by region, county, town or local council, and then print out the details.

Personally I'm hoping to get to see Bromley House Library in Nottingham. It's actually a few doors away from the modern Central Library in the city.

Hopefully I can then get to the places I'd intended to go to last weekend before my plans changed...

I hope to be able to take a few photos for mine and Serena's blog, though they will be different places of course.

So if you get to events near you, have fun...

  1. Thank you for this, Carol. I'd noticed that a lot of buildings in Ipswich are being opened this weekend, then realised it was happening in Harwich too. I hadn't realised it was part of a far bigger event. Thank you for the website link xx

  2. Glad you have found this helpful, Teresa. It happens around this time every September. Hope you got a chance to visit some of the places open in your area- and enjoyed them.

    When I finally left the library, 2+ hours later, people were having to wait to get in...

  3. I think I'll be too busy this year, Carol, but if you remind us in time next year I might make it!

  4. I'll make a note to remind you for next September, Lizy. :)

    You will hopefully be settled in your new home and have lots to see.
