Saturday 19th and Sunday 11th September 2016
The Southampton Heritage Open Days took place on Saturday 10th & Sunday 11th September 2016. The event is part of the national Heritage Open Days event.


The whole event was free and gave the opportunity to visit different locations around Southampton. The event was based around the Bugle Street area with heritage buses linking to other venues across the City.

The sub committee of Southampton Heritage Federation is now planning a future event as the 2016 day was a great sucess.
