A number of historical buildings, gardens, interesting and unusual locations throughout Gwynedd and Conwy will be open to the public for free this September.

As part of the ‘Open Doors’ scheme, around 50 various buildings across Gwynedd and Conwy will open their doors to the public as part of an annual programme that celebrates Wales’ architectural heritage.

Throughout September, a series of events and activities will be held at locations across both counties with opportunities for local residents and visitors to get a taste of the area’s history and heritage.

Councillor John Wynn Jones, Gwynedd Council’s Cabinet Member for Economy:

“From medieval churches and historic mansions to resplendent gardens and museums with collections of the area’s history, Open Doors offers local residents and visitors a chance to enjoy our area’s wonderful attractions.

“With almost 50 attractions across Gwynedd and Conwy opening their doors free of charge for periods during September, there will be a fantastic opportunity to enjoy the area’s rich heritage. I would urge anyone who is interested in local history or who takes an interest in architecture to make the most of this offer – there’s something for everyone.”

Details about the attractions that will be open as part of ‘Open Doors’ have been published in a booklet by the Ein Treftadaeth / Our Heritage project, which is part of Cadw’s Heritage Tourism Project, funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh Government. Copies are available from Tourist Information Centres across Gwynedd and Conwy.
