Bristol Open Doors

For one weekend a year, Bristol Open Doors gives you the keys to the city. Discover heritage spaces, forgotten places and innovative design. Opening 101 fascinating buildings and uncovering their secrets through expert-led tours, the festival celebrates the city’s architecture, heritage and design. Bristol Open Doors is brought to you by the Architecture Centre, with the support of a fantastic network of partners across the city.

The Architecture Centre

The Architecture Centre is Bristol’s centre for design and creative placemaking. Founded in 1996 and based on Bristol’s Harbourside, the charity’s mission is to encourage an understanding and enjoyment of architecture, and to champion better buildings and places for everyone.
