This event (happening yearly around the country) is a fantastic opportunity to explore King’s Lynn’s historic buildings. The town will celebrate this special day once again on Sunday 12th September 2021, with many places of interest to see during that day. You can view the list of venues within the programme on the King’s Lynn Civic Society website and visitors will be able to pick up a printed programme from the King’s Lynn TIC nearer the time of the event. There will also be planned events in the town on that day too, all making King’s Lynn’s Heritage Open Day a bumper event of history and heritage.
The King’s Lynn Civic Society working with the Borough Council of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk, the King’s Lynn Town Guides, local businesses, residents and Friends groups arrange such a jam-packed programme of open buildings, cemeteries and towers and tunnels with lots of special events, talks and exhibitions.
A guaranteed day of fun for all the family, and the chance to have a sneak peek at buildings not normally open to the public including, on occasion, a very popular World War II Air Raid Shelter underneath Tuesday Market Place. There is also a vintage bus arranged each year, free for everyone to use on the day. So, if you feel that some places are a bit far to get to on foot, simply hop on the bus.
The King’s Lynn 2019 Heritage Open Day Programme, containing more information about all the kinds of fascinating things that visitors can expect to see and do during an Heritage Open Day, is still available to download to give you an example of some of the venues and activities to expect on our annual Heritage Open Days.
The Printed 2021 Programme
The full-colour printed programme for 2021’s day of events will be available for collection from the King’s Lynn TIC (alongside other key venues around the town) from the start of September 2021.
