There are also tours, a children’s Heritage Explorer Trail, allotments, an orchard and parks all taking part.

This is the 25th year of the national event, and Coventry has been involved from the start.

All opening times, tour booking information and venue details are contained in the FREE Heritage Open Days brochure which is out now.  
Councillor Abdul Salam Khan, Deputy Leader 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!
