Oxford Open Doors 2020 takes place on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 September with the theme ‘Hidden Nature’. Keep checking this page for updates with the full programme of events announced in early August!

Last year was a huge success. Over 35,000 visitors came to explore and enjoy our wonderful city – making Oxford Open Doors one of the most successful Heritage Open Days events in the country.
