Event Details

England’s largest festival of history and culture celebrates its 25th anniversary with thousands of free events taking place across ten days. Visitors will have the opportunity to explore places not normally open to the public and learn more about the heritage on their doorstep. During the annual festival, doors are flung open at some of the country’s best-known attractions, as well as private and community spaces ranging from country houses to museum archives, theatres, churches and wildlife reserves. Until September 22.

PICTURE: Visit two of Maidenhead’s historic churches on Saturday September 14. St Mary’s in White Waltham is a Grade II listed church set in a country churchyard which is home to a 1600-year-old yew tree. Open for visitors from 10am to 4pm with self-guided tour leaflets provided and someone on hand to answer questions from 10am-noon and 2-4pm. Tours of the bell tower available from 2-4pm, including a demonstration of bell ringing.

Also open is the Church of St John the Baptist in Shottesbrooke Park, a Grade I listed church with a ring of six bells, three dating from 1634. Join a tower tour to climb the spiral staircase and visit the ringing chamber. Open from 10am until 1pm.
