The Ipswich Society is once again pleased to organise access to many local buildings of historical interest with the co-operation of owners and occupiers for this year’s Heritage Open Days on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th September.
This year more than 30 venues are open in Ipswich as part of the event as well as an historic sailing barge built here in Ipswich. Additional venues this year include the Grade I listed Willis building, which is open on the Sunday only, where you will be given tours and be able to walk on the roof garden and have coffee and refreshments in the roof top restaurant.
There will be free guided walks provided by Ipswich Tourist Guides and the Ipswich Building Preservation Trust. On the Saturday there will be an extended route of the popular free bus tour on a heritage bus provided by the Ipswich Transport Museum.
The Heritage Open Days event provides a chance to see inside historical buildings, many of which are not normally accessible to the general public.
The Ipswich Society has produced a colour brochure with details of the venues taking part in the event which is available at the Tourist Information Centre in St. Stephen’s Church and will be found displayed in other locations around the town. Further information will be available at the sites with guides on hand at many of the locations.
