Discover the hidden gems on your doorstep
Heritage Open Days is England's biggest heritage festival, offering you the chance to see hidden places and try out new experiences for free.

Every year on four days in September, the bunting is unfurled and buildings of every age, style and function throw open their doors. It's a once-a-year chance to discover the often hidden or forgotten gems on our doorsteps and enjoy a wide range of tours, events and activities that bring local history and culture to life.

In Birmingham highlights include the Big Brum Open Top Bus Sightseeing Tour, the chance to visit Bournville Quaker Meeting House and Kings Heath Masonic Hall, a sneak peek backstage at Birmingham Hippodrome and a Pool Party featuring live music at the newly restored Stirchley Baths.
