Winchester Heritage Open Days

Heritage Open Days 2017 takes place Thursday 7th to Sunday 10th September, and here in Winchester thanks to the many event organisers, guides, volunteers and festival supporters we have more than 70 events and venues for you to explore for free. There are workshops, artists’ studios, historical archives, guided tours, lectures, vintage buses and cars, hidden gardens, historic buildings and even cider and gin tastings. 

To find out more you can explore our website, visit Tourist Information in Winchester or join our festival website emailing list. Our email updates are the best way to receive details of any changes or additions to the festival programme. You can also follow our Facebook page or join us on Instagram and Twitter. Remember everything is free to explore but you will need to book your place(s) at some of the events. 

Let’s open the doors! Heritage Open Days is an exercise in public consciousness. You can’t love and protect something unless you know about it!
