Heritage Open Days celebrates England’s fantastic architecture and culture by offering free access to places that are usually closed to the public or normally charge for admission.
Every year on four days in September, buildings of every age, style and function throw open their doors. It is a once-a-year chance to discover architectural treasures and enjoy a wide range of tours, events and activities that bring local history and culture to life.
In 2017 we’re aiming to offer tours of LCB Depot (a 1969 bus admin office remodelled in 2004 as Leicester’s creative business centre) and Makers’ Yard (a former Victorian hosiery factory & warehouse opened in 2013 as studios for artists and designer-makers)
