Heritage Open Day celebrations take part across all of the UK from the 11th to 14th September 2014. If you are planning to attend Heritage Day events in Milton Keynes or in Northampton, why not book into a serviced apartment and enjoy a leisurely week-end at either of these two destinations.
Heritage Open Days are an annual celebration of local history, architecture and culture. They are among England’s biggest and most popular voluntary cultural events, attracting some 800,000 people every year. The events in Milton Keynes are co-ordinated by the Living Archive, with support from Milton Keynes Council. Around 50 fun events and activities are available for visitors to enjoy free of charge. There is something of interest for all ages with all usual admission charges scrapped over the duration of the week-end.
Heritage Open Days are a great opportunity to explore some of Milton Keynes and Northampton’s most interesting and beautiful buildings, many of which are very important historically and culturally.
In Northampton you will be able to visit Delapre Abbey, the Guildhall and 78 Derngate as well as enjoy activities such as:
- Free boat trips on the Nene
- Rides on classic heritage buses
- Theatre performances
- Walks and talks
