Heritage Open Days
7 - 10 September 2017
Between 6 and 9, and 13 and 16 September 2018, 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.
Don't forget to pick up a Heritage Open Days flier from the Civic Offices, Woking Library or any of the 14 participating venues which shows all of the special places in Woking taking part, on one handy map.
