What is Open Cambridge?

Open Cambridge is a celebration of our community, the heritage and history. It highlights stories of Cambridge and the surrounding area. It provides an inclusive platform to showcase extraordinary spaces, places and people. Open Cambridge brings together our community for ten days to celebrate, discover and explore.

Open Cambridge is part of the national Heritage Open Days. It is designed to offer special access to places that are normally closed to the public or charge admission. The initiative provides an annual opportunity for people to discover the local history and heritage of their community.

Many of the Colleges and museums that feature in the programme allow public access throughout the year with a variety of opening hours and charges.

When is Open Cambridge?

Open Cambridge will take place between 6 to 15 September 2024.

The full programme will launch and bookings will open on Monday 12 August.
