From Monday 12th – Sunday 18th September, you can expect a diverse programme of open buildings, talks, guided walks and self-guided tours.

Bookings open Thursday 1st September , 2022


This year is an incredibly special one for us. We’re celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Glasgow Buildings Preservation Trust, who first founded our festival in 1990.

A lot has happened in those 40 years, both within the Trust and the wider city itself.

<p”>They’ll be reflecting on change – the good, the bad, what you fight to save and what you let go of – as well as some of Glasgow Building Preservation Trust’s greatest achievements preserving Glasgow’s heritage.


Some buildings at the festival are free for you to simply walk in, while some require booking. Information on how and what to book and  which buildings require booking can be found at Glasgow Doors Open Day website.

You can also get involved online:
