About Doors Open Days Lanarkshire 2017

Doors Open Days is Scotland's largest free festival that celebrates heritage and the built environment. It offers free access to over a thousand venues across the country throughout September, every year.

This weekend (Saturday 30th September) is the final day of Doors Open Days! There are 6 buildings to explore in South Lanarkshire.

Explore the incredible Pettinain Church, set in a very old burial site and the fictional resting place of Jim Taggart's Aunt Hettie!

If you enjoyed exploring the iconic St. Peter's Seminary last weekend then you may want to check out St. Bride's RC Church, designed by the same architects.

Get behind the scenes of Hamilton Sheriff Court and take part in a mock trial; book in for a tour of the incredible Hamilton Mausoleum to test out the record breaking echo and visit the historic East Kilbride Old Parish Church for guided tours of the church and graveyard.

New to Doors Open Days this year is the Blantyre Old Parish Church opening its doors for a celebration of 450 years!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Doors Open Days Lanarkshire 2017 are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
