European Heritage Open Days (EHOD) is Northern Ireland’s annual celebration of local architecture, history and culture. Each year many properties and locations open their doors to the public to host lots of free events. This year EHOD 2021 is taking place from 6 to 12 September.

The physical events (outdoor) will run from 10 to 12 September whilst the digital events will run from 6 to 12 September.

The week-long digital event will include virtual visits to sites and properties, guided tours and a host of online lectures and talks whilst the more traditional outdoor event will see properties open their doors to the public as well as a hosting lectures and talks.
