Herefordshire Council’s popular annual Heritage Open Days is returning again this year.
This year’s open days will take place in locations across the county from Thursday 12 September to Sunday 15 September and provide the perfect opportunity to discover culture, heritage and new places to visit in Herefordshire, absolutely free.
The open days will allow you to access places not generally open to the public such as Homme House near Ledbury, Garnons near Byford, St Katherine’s in Ledbury and Holme Lacy House Hotel. There will also be the opportunity to visit fabulous places which normally charge, for free, such as National Trust sites.
There will be specially commissioned walks with an urban archaeologist or a member of the Guild of Guides in Hereford and with History with a Twist historian, Mary Sinclair Powell in Ross-on-Wye.
There is a chance to listen to specially prepared talks at Longworth Roman Catholic Chapel in Bartestree and St Peter and St Paul Church in Weobley, while discovering the many other splendid churches around the county.
There are numerous Herefordshire venues to visit this year and to make sure you don’t miss anything, an open day guide is available from local libraries, Tourist Information Centres and some participating sites. Alternatively, you can download a copy of the Heritage Open Day guide.

Please note that page 7 of the guide states that the Herefordshire Light Infantry Museum is open on Saturday 14 September. This is incorrect as the museum is actually open on Saturday 7 September instead.
