Doors Open Days Inverclyde

About Doors Open Days Inverclyde

Doors Open Days is Scotland’s largest free festival that celebrates heritage and the built environment, new and old. Every September, you can explore hundreds of fascinating buildings across Scotland for free. Some open up once a year, some just once in a lifetime.

Doors Open Days is a national event run by the Scottish Civic Trust. Information about the national programme, including event listings, can be found at www.doorsopendays.org.uk. Among the in-person events are tours of: the iconic, award-winning Wemyss Bay Railway Station; Greenock’s famous ‘Toon Kirk’, Wellpark Mid Kirk; Port Glasgow and Central libraries; and the recently-refurbished, council-owned Greenock Art Club located in Gourock Park.

Virtual events include a look behind the scenes of St Mary’s Catholic Church in Greenock, Old Gourock and Ashton Parish and Skelmorlie and Wemyss Bay Church.

A new addition to this year’s programme is walking tours of war graves at Greenock Cemetery – the largest war cemetery in Scotland – on Saturday 11 September led by the War Graves Commission, although places are very limited and must be booked in advance.

Provost Martin Brennan, who is also vice-convener of education and communities, said: “We have so much to offer so it’s fabulous that people can once again discover Inverclyde in-person thanks to Doors Open Days.

“It’s another packed programme of things to do and see in the flesh or online which means it caters for people of all ages and abilities.

“Best of all, Doors Open Days is completely free so I hope people take advantage and enjoy what is shaping up to be a brilliant weekend of events and activities.”


Places are limited on all walks and must be booked in advance.
