Explore your local history and heritage. Free tours, events and activities for all the family.

Friday, 6th to Sunday, 15th September 2024

More than 220 free Heritage Open Days events took place across Milton Keynes last September.

The theme for this year is Routes – Networks – Connections. In 2024 we will be celebrating how people and ideas have moved around and come together throughout history. The transport routes, communication networks, trade unions and social clubs. The travellers who have spread ideas and the hosts who welcome them. There are so many stories on our doorsteps just waiting to be uncovered.

To celebrate HODs 30th anniversary a special gallery page showcases the wonderful sites, stories and people that have made Heritage Open Days so magical over the years. It features the Ancient Monument of Bradwell Abbey.

The events list for 2024 has been published online by the Living Archive Milton Keynes.
