Heritage Open Days Wolverhampton

Heritage Open Days celebrates England’s fantastic architecture and culture by offering free access to properties that are usually closed to the public or normally charge for admission. In previous years, The School of Art and Design have participated in Heritage Open Days. 

Every year on four days in September, buildings of every age, style and function throw open their doors, ranging from castles to factories, town halls to tithe barns, parish churches to Buddhist temples. It is a once-a-year chance to discover hidden architectural treasures and enjoy a wide range of tours, events and activities which bring to life local history and culture.

This year Wolverhampton is offering an impressive array of Heritage Open Days, including free entry to the National Trust Wightwick Manor and Gardens (a treasure trove of Arts and Crafts and Pre Raphaelite works),  the fascinating Beatties House of Fraser Heritage Room,
Moseley Old Hall (another National Trust property offering free entry), Thomas Cook a history of holidays (including a display of historic Thomas Cook brochure and publicity material), plus there is also the chance to take tea in the mayors chamber with the Lord of Mayor of Wolverhampton, 
Councillor Bert Turner.
