Heritage Open Days
13-22 September 2019
Between 13 and 22 September 2019, 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 charge for admission or are closed to the public.
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.
Some of the Borough's most historic places of worship will be welcoming visitors, such as the church of St. Mary-the-Virgin in Horsell. 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, including The Lightbox Gallery and Museum.
Don't forget to pick up a Heritage Open Days guide from the Civic Offices, Woking Library or any of the participating venues, which shows all of the special places in Woking taking part on one handy map.
