Open Doors - Drysau Agored
Weekends in September

For more information click here.

This September, more than 150 of Wales’ historic sites, landmarks and hidden gems will offer visitors free entry, events or guided tours.

It’s all part of Open Doors — Wales’ annual contribution to the European Heritage Days initiative, which invites heritage organisations, private owners, local authorities and others to open their doors or offer activities to the public free of charge during September.

Funded and organised by Cadw, the ever-popular festival of Wales’ built heritage will this year, encourage Welsh residents and visitors alike to explore some of the country’s lesser-known and smaller-scale sites ― several of which are usually closed to the public.

As part of this, eighteen Cadw sites will feature in the programme of events for Open Doors 2021. Organised events hosted at Cadw sites will take place on select dates only ― with a limited number of spaces available for each event.

Find out more information and to book tickets for the Cadw sites taking part in Open Doors during September 2021.
