Bath and North East Somerset
Heritage Open Days

Free AdmissionFree



Local people and visitors are invited to explore Bath and North East Somerset’s fantastic heritage as venues across the area open their doors for Heritage Open Days.

The nationwide celebration of history, architecture and culture is a chance to see hidden places and try out new experiences – all for free.

This is a wonderful opportunity to see behind the scenes at venues that are normally closed to the public – from historic buildings to gardens and museum stores.

There will be something for all ages and interests during the four-day celebration, for example:

-See inside No. 4 The Circus and explore its beautifully restored Georgian garden – the first of its kind in Britain
-Take a tour of the archives and new Local Studies strongroom at the recently refurbished Bath Record Office
-Visit Cleveland Pools and learn about plans for the restoration of this Grade II listed pool – the oldest open air public pool in the country
-Follow the Widcombe Chapel Trail to discover ancient churches, outstanding architecture and fascinating cemeteries
-See inside the home of Haile Selassie at Fairfield House, an Italianate Victorian villa with an Arts and Crafts extension
-Explore archaeological finds from Keynsham, including Roman and Medieval objects, at Pixash Lane Archaeology Store
-Visit the historic Saltford Brass Mill, complete with a working 18-foot water wheel
-Head to Midsomer Norton Station to explore the Railway Museum, Anderson shelter and pill box
