Sheffield Heritage Open Days

Fri. 9 September 2022 — Sun. 18 September 2022


Each September, doors to cultural treasures open all over the country for Heritage Open Days. Ten days dedicated to free heritage exploration, led by local experts and volunteers.

Last year's event took place a little differently, with a mix of virtual tours, online talks and events, and socially distanced in-person events. Come back soon to find out what's in store in Sheffield for Heritage Open Days 2022.

The city’s Heritage Open Days programme is coordinated by Sheffield Civic Trust.
