Heritage Open Days
Heritage Open Days in Cornwall celebrate fantastic architecture and culture by offering free access to properties that are usually closed to the public or normally charge for admission. Every year in September, buildings of every age, style and function throw open their doors. It is a once-a-year chance to discover hidden architectural treasures and enjoy a wide range of events and activities which bring to life local history and culture. For a full list of over 40 properties that are open in Cornwall, visit the Heritage Open Days in Cornwall website.
Amongst the places taking part in 2019 were the Arthurian Centre near Camelford, the National Trusts' properties at Glendurgan Gardens, Trerice, Trengwainton, and the Old Tintagel Post Office. There were guided walks around Liskeard, a chance to climb the tower of Altarnun Parish Church, a Heavy Transport Open Day at Wheal Martyn plus access to the water treatment works at Launceston!
Go along and celebrate heritage, community and history including your chance to see hidden places in the town and try out new experiences – and it’s all FREE.
