Open Doors - Llangollen

Following a hugely successful weekend in Denbigh, ‘Open Doors’ will be coming to Llangollen on 19 and 20 September.

Walks and tours still available to book include: a ‘behind the scenes’ tour of the Royal International Pavilion which is home to the International Musical Eisteddfod. Walk to Castell Dinas Bran with Denbighshire County Council Archaeologist, Fiona Gale – walking boots are advisable! For a more leisurely stroll – take a walking tour along Llangollen Canal and discover the history of some of the buildings and of the canal itself.

Do you have an intrest in geology? Cythia Burek, Professor of Geoconservation at the University of Chester will be looking at the buildings of Llangollen with geology in mind. You can also join a tour to look at St Collen’s Church which dates from the 13th century.

Open Doors is also taking place in Ruthin on 26 and 27 September.

European Heritage Days are an initiative of the Council of Europe. ‘Open Doors’ is co-ordinated by the Civic Trust for Wales whose partners organise parallel events in England and Scotland. The initiative was launched in 1991 and last year over 20 million people visited all the participating sites throughout Europe.
