European Heritage Days
Doors Open Days, with Scottish Archaeology Month, form Scotland's contribution to European Heritage Days, a joint initiative of the Council of Europe and the European Union.
The European Heritage Days are the most widely celebrated participatory cultural event shared by the people of Europe. The Council of Europe launched the initiative in 1985, and in 1999 was joined by the European Union to create the joint action, which has continued up to the present day.

In the UK you can enjoy events in Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland as part of European Heritage Days. Find more doors waiting to be opened this September:
