Heritage Open Days
7 - 10 September 2017
Between 7 and 10 September 2017, some of Woking Borough’s most iconic buildings will be taking part in Heritage Open Days, which celebrates England’s fantastic architecture and culture by offering free access to properties which normally are either closed to the public or charge for admission.
Although Woking is often perceived as a modern town with its attention firmly focused on the future, the Borough has a long and rich history. It contains several nationally-significant heritage sites, such as Brookwood Cemetery and Woking Palace.
One of the Borough's most historic places of worship will be welcoming visitors, at the church of St. Mary-the-Virgin. Visitors will also have an opportunity to stroll around the beautifully restored Peace Garden at the Muslim Burial Ground.
Often described as ‘hidden treasures’, these sites offer a rare glimpse into Woking’s fascinating past.
In addition, visitors to Woking can also enjoy some of the Borough’s more modern buildings, such as WWF-UK’s award-winning headquarters The Living Planet Centre and the The Lightbox nearby. Or why not peep behind the scenes at the New Victoria Theatre?

Don't forget to pick up a Heritage Open Days flier from the Civic Offices, Woking Library or any of the participating venues which shows all of the venues in Woking taking part on one handy map.
