Renfrewshire Doors Open Days

About Renfrewshire Doors Open Days

There’s so much more to Renfrewshire than meets the eye…step through our doors to discover never before seen spaces and fascinating stories!
Doors Open Days will see over 50 Renfrewshire venues throw open their doors for a spectacular weekend of free exploration and adventure on Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 September.

That’s the magic of Doors Open Days; you can be a tourist in your own town or discover a new place entirely – including some buildings and spaces not normally open to the public.

This year that includes Paisley’s Abbey Drain, a medieval tunnel nearly 100m long that was first discovered in the early 1990s underneath the Abbey gardens. Lucky adventurers will win a chance to tour the drain again this year, following a hugely successful ballot in 2018. More details about this year’s ballot will follow soon!

J&W Goudie will also add a touch of luxury to this year’s programme by providing two limousines that Doors Open Day visitors in Paisley can hail to catch a ride to their next stop.

Don’t miss this annual opportunity to see inside some of the most interesting churches, beautiful allotments, historic attractions, captivating courtrooms and natural wonders that Renfrewshire has to offer.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Renfrewshire Doors Open Days are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
