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

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

Lets Celebrate Glasgow!

Join us in September 2015 for 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



The 2015 Programme has been announced!  View the brochure here. With more details for each of the events available in the online programme listings and this year our first ever Children’s Programme!



Some of the events require advanced booking. The bookings for these open at 10am on Wednesday 26th August 2015. Click here to book.

Part of Doors Open Days®

If one week just isn’t enough why not visit Doors Open Days® across Scotland. Doors Open Days® is coordinated nationally by the Scottish Civic Trust. It runs throughout Scotland every September as part of European Heritage Days.
