Oxford Open Doors 2023 is a weekend that celebrates Oxford’s heritage and culture by giving everyone the chance to get behind Oxford’s closed doors.
People are invited to explore the colleges, university buildings and green spaces together with a range of other varied and hidden heritage sites across the city – many of which are not usually open to members of the public.
Oxford Preservation Trust and the University of Oxford organise the annual Oxford Open Doors event every September. In 2021, the theme was “Oxford Re-Opens Doors”, and the organisers put together a fantastic weekend of events.
This included a selection of buildings and green spaces open to in-person visits, a variety of virtual events (including tours, exhibitions and talks) and a range of guided and self-guided walks around the city and its green setting.
The organisers also put together several free and paid events throughout the year, some for members only. You can see a list of these events at https://www.oxfordpreservation.org.uk/content/events
