Heritage Open Days

Group visits

The National Heritage Open Days festival returns again this year, despite the impact of the ongoing pandemic situation on heritage venues, staff, volunteers and visitors.

In Coventry we're delighted that some venues will be able to physically admit visitors, while elsewhere digital content will enable visitors to enjoy Coventry's heritage from the comfort of their own home or nearby coffee shop! See the Council website for a full round up of Coventry Heritage Open Days in 2020.
