The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Sheffield Botanical Gardens

Each September, doors to cultural treasures open all over the country for days dedicated to free heritage exploration, led by local experts and volunteers. From guided tours of everything from former steelworks to cemeteries to heritage pub walks to open doors at libraries, mosques, theatres and factories – there's always loads going on across Sheffield for Heritage Open Days. And this time round, for its 25 year, the event is taking place over a whopping ten days.

Come back soon for our top picks of the 2019 Heritage Open Days events in Sheffield.
