Peterborough Heritage Open Days


Heritage Open Days celebrates England's fantastic architecture and culture by offering access to properties that are usually closed to the public or waive their charge for entry or apply a reduced rate. It is a once-in-year's chance to discover fascinating buildings and to enjoy a wide range of tours, events and activities that bring to life local history and culture.

More than 30 buildings in Peterborough and the surrounding villages have signed up to take part, which will be celebrated in Peterborough from Friday 13 September to Sunday 15 September, with a couple of events the following weekend..

New venues include the 18th century D’Arcy Jewellers’ Shop in the city centre, the ArcHaus architects’ offices located in a carefully restored 1930s art deco building near Wansford, the magnificent ground floor reception rooms of Thorpe Hall, and a range of fine churches – Longthorpe Church, rebuilt on its present site in the 1260’s by the Thorpe family; Castor Church opening its wonderful tower; Marholm’s medieval church with impressive memorials to the Fitzwilliam family; the listed church in rural Upton; Water Newton’s medieval church set beside the River Nene; and, also on the river, the ancient church at Stibbington. Many venues will be offering guided tours, talks and displays whilst others are opening their doors for visitors to wander freely as they choose. These events provide the opportunity to explore the history of Peterborough and, in some cases, to visit buildings not normally open to the public.

Unfortunatly the Peterborough Archives Service will not be participating this year.
