Welcome to Oxford Open Doors 2017

OXFORD PRESERVATION TRUST AND THE UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD WELCOME YOU to our annual Festival of Oxford, a weekend when we celebrate the city -

its places, spaces and most of all its people

"The University is full of wonderful places and Oxford Open Doors is our opportunity to share some of our hidden treasures more widely. We look forward to welcoming a record number of people to explore our wonderful buildings, gardens and collections."
Professor Louise Richardson,
Vice-Chancellor of the University of Oxford
“Oxford Preservation Trust love organising Oxford Open Doors as it gives everyone the chance to share in Oxford’s wonderful places and spaces. This year’s theme of ‘Hidden Oxford’ has encouraged our many partners to open lots of doors, old and new. We thank them, and our many volunteers, who help make the weekend so special. Have a great time.”
Debbie Dance,
Director of Oxford Preservation Trust





Oxford Open Doors is organised by Oxford Preservation Trust (OPT), in partnership with the University of Oxford. It is free with thanks to our partners, volunteers, supporters and the places and people who open their doors.
