Cambridge opens its doors for a special weekend in September 

Open Cambridge is part of the national Heritage Open Days scheme. 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.

If you would like to be added to our mailing list to receive updates and information about the festivals please email And follow us on twitter @OpenCambridgeUK.

Open Cambridge is co-ordinated by the Public Engagement team at the University of Cambridge, which works across the University and Colleges to support public research discussion and community outreach work.
