Every year in September, thousands of buildings in England are opened up especially for the public to take a look inside.
It is a great opportunity to enjoy the architecture and history around us and to participate in interesting walks and talks.
All the openings and events are organised by volunteers in conjunction with English Heritage.
Newcastle Borough has an increasing number of venues to visit and events to take part in.
Look out for more details later, in the Sentinel and in displays at Newcastle Library and at the Borough Museum.
