Celebrating Scotland’s heritage and it’s built environment, Doors Open Days offers free access to over a thousand venues across the country each September. The festival aims to ensure that Scotland’s spaces and stories, both new and old, are made accessible to people throughout the country.

Whether you want to peek inside a university building or explore an architect’s studio, this is a great way to see inside many of the country’s fascinating buildings.

2020 saw Doors Open Days’ first ever digital festival. Building on the success of this, the 2021 festival will have a variety of online and in-person events, enabling more visitors than ever before to explore Scotland’s places of interest.

This year’s Edinburgh and East Lothian Doors Open Days weekend takes place over Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 September.
