Bristol Doors Open Days

All Saints Church


Bristol Open Doors is a once-a-year chance to look behind closed doors and discover the city's hidden treasures. You can explore fascinating buildings, join guided tours and enjoy a range of creative events and activities – all for free!

This year's highlights include:

- Floating Architecture
Explore the architecture of the Floating Harbour on this stand-up paddleboarding tour, guided by qualified SUP Bristol instructors and an architecture expert. 
- Childen's Scrapstore
Come create a cardboard city of dreams! Drop in to the on-site playroom brimming with scrap and craft materials. Adult enthusiasts can join a warehouse tour to see how Scrapstore turns waste things to playthings and get special access to the members-only warehouse.
- Walking Wapping Wharf
Join Alec French Architects on a tour of the award-winning development at Wapping Wharf, which has transformed a once derelict place into a successful residential area and vibrant food hub. 
- Building by Boat
Get a new perspective on Bristol’s buildings – from the water with Bristol Ferries. Discover the waterway’s engineering feats, new neighbourhood developments and ever-changing aesthetic.
