A feast for foodies! Heritage Open Days returns in September

Heritage Open Days

Heritage Open Days will return to Norfolk from 10-19 September 2021!


The festival lets you explore amazing buildings including hidden gems usually closed to the public. Best of all its completely free! 

Each year's festival has a theme and this year its ‘Edible England’. So alongside tours and open days expect food related events and activities!

All this is possible thanks to our partners, event organisers and volunteers who are hard at work preparing this year’s programme. 

Events will also explore the customs and quirks that have developed around what we eat and drink, as well as the fascinating history of some of our regional and national specialties. 

Festival events will also include a mix of online and in-person events, which will reflect social distancing guidance to keep visitors safe.

All this is possible thanks to partners, event organisers and volunteers
