Have a nosy around town as heritage open days return this September

If you like nosing around other people’s pads then you won’t want to miss the Heritage Open Days. For nine days in September, heaps of buildings in the city, many of which aren’t usually fully accessible to the public, swing open their doors and let you have a look around.

England’s largest festival of history and culture is back for 2024 and the programme is packed with good stuff, including walking tours, workshops, guided tours and a whole host of buildings open for a peek inside.

Highlights of the programme this year include access to Seaford’s famous Coastguard Cottage, a chance to watch – and have a go at – the age-old art of spinning in Alfriston, the Downs Junior School underground air raid shelter, and plenty of walks around less discovered parts of the city, such as West Hill, Brighton’s ‘hidden neighbourhood’.

As ever, everything is totally FREE, so go exploring.
