Heritage Open Days are organised by volunteers in conjunction with English Heritage.

All over the country the doors of interesting buildings are thrown open and everyone is invited to look around inside! 

In addition, walks, talks and guided tours take place, and all free of charge!

There are many openings and events in Newcastle-under-Lyme and District. 

Why don’t you join in?

Every building tells a unique story and it’s all for free!
