Heritage Open Days

Free to explore | Thursday 8th – Sunday 11th September 2016


Across England Heritage Open Days events are organised to celebrate history, architecture and culture; to provide an opportunity to see hidden places, hear intriguing stories, savour new experiences, and all FREE to explore.

In Sheffield our volunteers are hosting a record 85 events. All over the city volunteers are opening up buildings, leading walks and tours, and are ready to share their knowledge and expertise with you. So make sure you join them to discover something new and share their pride in this city.

Sheffield Civic Trust is proud to be the local coordinator of this important annual event, which will be launched by the Lord Mayor, Councillor Denise Fox. We also want to register our enormous thanks to the Sheffield Town Trust, whose financial support has allowed us to produce a much larger quantity of printed booklets this year. You can download an electronic copy of the 2016 Sheffield Heritage Open Day booklet here (pdf, 5mb).
