The key to the city is yours. 14th - 20th September 2015

Buildings. Streets. Parks. Architecture. History. All open. All free.

Lets Celebrate Glasgow!

Thank you for your interest in Glasgow’s Doors Open Day; a free festival that celebrates Glasgow’s buildings, streets, parks, architecture, history and people with a programme full of walks, tours, talks, events and more than 100 buildings open for anyone to visit. For one week only, doors are opened and you are encouraged to explore Glasgow in a new way.

The events are so varied that it was almost impossible to choose. I was like a child in a sweet shop wanting to go to them all!!!   2014 Visitor


Our next Doors Open Day is scheduled to take place from September 12th-18th 2016. (Programme TBC)


Our 2015 Programme has now finished but you can get an idea of what to expect next year by viewing our 2015 brochure here. More details for each of the past events are available in the online programme listings and this year was our first ever Children’s Programme!
