Oxford Open Doors weekend CANCELLED

Date(s) - 8th Sep 2018

City centre




We will visit the historic city of Oxford. On this trip you will have free time to get a ‘behind the scenes’ look at some of Oxford’s most iconic buildings.

Open Doors weekend is the time when many of Oxford’s significant contemporary and historic buildings open their doors to the general public, many of which do not usually do so. Discover hidden areas that that are normally closed, visit the Bodleian library, the Sheldonian Theatre, climb tall towers or explore secret rooms.
Around three quarters of the visits involve the museums, colleges and departments of the collegiate University – the choice is yours.

Many venues will just open up and you can wander as you please. With some venues you will need to reserve your place in advance. The full programme is yet to be published, so keep an eye on the Oxford Open Doors website.

Most venues will be open 10am to 4pm.
