OPEN DOORS / DRYSAU AGORED, European Heritage Days

In September 2021 we will also be part of the OPEN DOORS / DRYSAU AGORED programme. Part of the wider European Heritage Days programme, Open Doors / Drysau Agored has seen hundreds of Welsh venues offer free entry, activities and events throughout September. Wales is one of 50 countries taking part in Open Doors / Drysau Agored. Although St Davids Cathedral is open 365 days a year (outside of global pandemics) this will enable us to join with 50 European countries who are all sharing our built heritage with free entry, activities and events for members of the public.

In St Davids Cathedral Open Doors we are holding special events and tours on 25th, 26th and 29th September. Book here online:
