27 July 2023

Historic and cultural sites across West Northamptonshire will once again be opening their doors for free as part of this year’s Heritage Open Days, which will take place between 8 and 17 September.

Venues such as stately homes, historic buildings, museums, places of worship and archaeological sites will be taking part in the event, which is England’s largest annual festival of history and culture.

We are inviting students and young people from across West Northamptonshire to create a TikTok video of their favourite historic and heritage venues. We’d love to see your creation – follow and tag us @westnorthants using #HeritageOpenDays and you could see your video promoted to thousands of people across our platforms. We are also offering gift cards for the most viewed videos!

Many venues taking part in Heritage Open Days will be connected by Northampton Transport Heritage buses, which will be offering a free hop-on hop-off service during Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 September, providing easy access between sites.

For more information about Heritage Open Days and to see a full list of venues taking part see our Heritage Open Days page.
