Edinburgh Doors 2011


On Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 September 2011, 79 venues across Edinburgh are opening their doors to the public to explore architectural and cultural gems. Take a peek behind normally closed doors, go to places you’ve never been before and discover the magic of Scotland’s capital.

Now in its 21st year, Doors Open Day 2011 has a strong sporting theme reflected in many of the buildings taking part and in the activities that are taking place over the weekend. Explore some of the venues through our collections in the gallery below.

RCAHMS will also be opening its doors on Saturday 24 September and full details can be found on our News page.
