Hidden Bristol by Bristol Open Doors


Bristol Open Doors celebrates the past, present and future of our city through a programme of quality events and innovative, one-off experiences.

For one weekend in September, the festival gives citizens the keys to the city with hands-on workshops, talks and expert-led tours. Working with some of the world’s brightest architectural and engineering firms and resident Bristol historians, we reinvigorate our city’s iconic landmarks and uncover access to it’s forgotten spaces.
