In 2015 Bristol Doors Open Day takes place on Saturday 12 September
Bristol Doors Open Day is the day when many of Bristol’s significant buildings open their doors to the public, for free. It is an annual highlight where visitors of all ages can go behind the scenes of buildings that are usually closed or not fully accessible.
Many of the venues are featured on this website, and we invite you to explore it at your leisure.
