Heritage Open Days 2021

For the 26th year in Gloucester, Heritage Open Days will take place on Friday 10th to Monday 13th September 2021. 

Gloucester’s events, organised by Gloucester Civic Trust , feature a multitude of tours and events, from the opportunity to see inside buried Roman ruins to viewing the inside one of the best examples of a Tudor Merchant’s house in the country.  The city is among the top venues in the country with its huge range of activities during Heritage Open Days. The free programme of guided walks, talks and heritage venues open to the public all offer a rare change for people to explore the sites of Gloucester.

Please scroll down for the full Heritage Open Days Programme. Events are free but some do require a booking – tickets are now available.
