Over 80 events across the borough will be open to the public including, the Guildhall (Friday and Saturday only), Guildford Castle (Saturday only) and Guildford Cathedral (Friday and Saturday only).

They also include the Great Barn in Wanborough and the Guildford House Gallery, which is celebrating its 60th anniversary.

Lead Councillor for Leisure, Heritage and Tourism, Cllr James Steel said:

“Heritage Open Days are a great opportunity to enjoy Guildford’s rich history and architecture for free.

"It’s a chance for all the family to learn and experience some fantastic buildings and outdoor spaces which you may not have visited before.

"We have so many beautiful venues in our borough from castles to cathedrals, you’ll be spoilt for choice."

"There are also plenty of excellent guided tours, walks, talks and activities on offer - there’s something for everyone."
