Heritage Open Day celebrates the Island’s built heritage and specifically those properties gifted to the National Trust for Jersey, by allowing free access to historic and unique properties that are not usually open or would normally charge an entrance fee. 

The event is part of the national celebration of architecture, history, and culture in association with the National Trust in the UK and is a wonderful opportunity to explore and enjoy these sometimes hidden, often curious and always interesting places. Thanks to the support of the Jersey Community Foundation.
