About Doors Open Days Lanarkshire 2015

Every weekend in September you can explore places that are normally closed to the public. Some open up once a year, some just once in a lifetime. This is your chance to discover the heritage on your doorstep or explore a new part of the country.

North and South Lanarkshire team up once again to bring you a programme full of interesting sites and fun events. Get behind the scenes of everyday buildings and important local landmarks for free on the 12th and 13th of September.
