Heritage Open Days, the national four-day event where local history and architecture is open FREE to the public, just gets bigger and better in Cheltenham.

Such iconic local buildings such as the recently restored Everyman theatre, Sandford Lido and Pittville Pump Room will be open again for tours. It’s also a chance to look round local historical attractions such as the Holtz museum – also for free.

This year, in addition, some brand new buildings are also on the event schedule. Take a tour of the new fire station near the hospital, or even the hospital itself with an expert on the building’s history. Alternatively, you can visit one of the many local churches that take part in the Heritage Open Days scheme such as the Grade II listed St Gregory’s in St James’ Square. If you’d rather stay outside, try a walking tour around Montpellier or Pittville.

More information from the handy online guide from local organisers - the Cheltenham Civic Society.
