Heritage Open Days

A 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.

This year the theme for Lincolnshire Heritage Open Days is 'Tudor Lincolnshire'. Don't forget to pick up your HOD brochure from a Tourist Information Centre or library near you or download a pdf version of the Heritage Open Days 2015 brochure.
