“A fantastic way to feel part of the city” Participant
Organised by the Architecture Centre, Bristol Open Doors is the much-loved annual festival when the city’s most fascinating buildings open their doors for one weekend – completely for free.
The aim of the weekend is to celebrate the city’s architecture through a programme of fascinating building visits, guided tours and a range of creative events. In 2017 the festival welcomed 70,000+ visits to over 100 venues across the city. For a review of 2017 read the adjacent document.
The festival returns this year on 14-16 September 2018.
