Winchester Heritage Open Days

FREE history & culture festival with 💯+ events - 13th to 22nd Sept 2019
Organised annually by a small team of part time volunteers

Winchester and our surrounding villages and towns have an incredibly rich architectural and cultural heritage. So perhaps it is not surprising that in 2018 we are going to have around 100 events take place, up from 80 last year! This year as well as even more hidden places for you to discover, we will be celebrating ‘Extraordinary Women’ of Hampshire. There will be talks, tours, exhibitions and competitions. And remember every tour, building, lecture, activity and exhibit is completely free over the 4 days!
