Northampton Heritage Open Days
13th September, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 15th September, 2019 @ 5:00 pm
If you love local history and heritage, don’t miss Northampton’s Heritage Open Days from 13-15 September, with over 30 historic venues in and around town open to the public free of charge. This year’s event is extra special, as it marks 25 years since Heritage Open Days started!
It’s your chance to discover more about some of the town’s oldest and most unique buildings and places, including the Victorian Gothic Guildhall, the ancient churches of St Peter’s and the Holy Sepulchre, the 1460 Battle of Northampton site and the Tudor Hazelrigg House.
And it’s not just about the buildings, there are walking tours of the lost Northampton Castle site, a route tracing the history of the town’s Suffragettes movement, an exhibition of Shakespeare-related leather items, a Heritage Fair and even an opportunity to take a seat in the Magistrates Court!
