Once again Coventry opens the doors on its rich heritage, from tomorrow (13 September) when the 25th Heritage Open Days begin.
The national event, which Coventry has taken part in and supported since the beginning, showcases the history and heritage of the area and Coventry always has some unusual and surprising participants, all FREE for the public to enjoy.
We have over 50 venues and activities including tours, children’s trails, allotments, churches, warehouses, museums, exhibitions and much, much more. All opening times, tour booking information and venue details are contained in the FREE Heritage Open Days brochure which is now out.
For the first time, we’re introducing a brand new family trail, exclusively developed for the 25th anniversary of Heritage Open Days. To help celebrate 25 years of Heritage Open Days, we’re bringing you an exciting new explorer trail, perfect for budding history explorers to seek out answers to our puzzling Coventry questions, hidden inside some of our city’s most inspiring buildings.
Follow the trail, discover your answers and claim your free heritage badge. Trails and badges will be available from the Coventry Tourist Information Centre (located inside the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum) or the Coventry Cathedral welcome desk.
Councillor Abdul Salam Khan, Deputy Leader of Coventry City Council and Cabinet Member for events said, “Heritage Open Days is a great showcase for the city and every year the event in the city continues to grow. There is plenty for all ages to see and do and with so much on offer I would urge everyone to pick up a brochure and plan your visits to make sure you don’t miss anything”
Brochures are available from the Council House, Tourist Information Centre in The Herbert, libraries and participating venues, so start planning your visits today. Many tours need to be pre booked so check either online or in the brochure to make sure you don’t miss out!
