At inlingua we love the excellent Doors Open Days held across Scotland. In Edinburgh the doors will be open to the public on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th September 2015. The events are run by the Cockburn Association.
The Edinburgh Doors Open Day 2015 gives you the chance to discover some of Edinburgh’s most unique and interesting buildings which are normally closed to the public for free! Some will be open for the first time, and some once in a lifetime, but they are all normally closed to the public (or charge an admission fee). You can have a look at the full online programme here.
There are 113 places to visit this year! Please see below our suggestions:
1. The Royal Observatory
2. Stewart’s Melville College
3. Thompson Tower
4. Edinburgh Printmakers
5. Burns Monument
6. The Old City Observatory on Calton Hill
7. The Colonnades at the Signet Library
8. Dovecot Studios
9. City Chambers of Edinburgh
10. The Advocates Library
This year it’s the 25th Edinburgh Doors Open Day. The theme is Food & Drink Edinburgh and many of the venues and activities will reflect this. You can join free talks, walks and tours which you can find listed in the brochure. Some venues are very popular and we advise booking your place early.
