Heritage Open Days is England’s largest festival of history and culture, bringing together over 2,000 local people and organisations, and thousands of volunteers. Every year in September, places across the country throw open their doors to celebrate their heritage, community and history. It’s your chance to see hidden places and try out new experiences – and it’s all FREE.

Special tours of some of the behind-the-scenes places at Fort Nelson not normally open to the general public.

There are three free tours:
– Victorian Officers’ Quarters
– West Mortar Battery
– The West Tunnel
