Heritage Open Days celebrate England's architecture and culture by allowing visitors free access to interesting properties that are either not usually open, or would normally charge an entrance fee. Each year dozens of free events take place over a weekend in September. There are building openings, exhibitions, guided walks, tours and talks. Often there’s also art, craft and music, and displays of traditional skills.

Tunbridge Wells Heritage Open Days 2018 are from Thursday 6th September to Sunday 9th September and Thursday 13th September to Sunday 16th September 2018

You can view the 2018 programme on the national website for Heritage Open Days. To look at our own local programme of 45 places and events across the Borough click on the link below and then select "Tunbridge Wells" from the list of Local Council Areas:
