About this event

Heritage Open Weekend at Rothamsted Manor is back this September!

Once again, we are taking part in Heritage Open Days – England’s largest festival of history and culture.

Heritage Open Days is England’s largest festival of history and culture, bringing together over 2,000 local people and organisations, and thousands of volunteers. Every year in September, places across the country throw open their doors to celebrate their heritage, community, and history. It’s your chance to see hidden places and try out new experiences – and it’s FREE ENTRY.

Come to Rothamsted Manor, a rarely open to the public, Grade I listed Manor house set in beautiful grounds on the Rothamsted Research estate in Harpenden.

This year, the theme of Heritage Open Days is ‘Creativity Unwrapped’ celebrating the history of creativity. From the famous to the ‘familiar only to locals’. 

Join us for some fun at Rothamsted Manor. You can look forward to:
o Self-Guided Manor House and Garden Tours
o Science activities and discovery room
o Cream teas in the library – please book this separately here
o Lawn games & outdoor activities
o Crafting activities
o Gift shop

And much more!
