The Southampton Heritage Open Day took place on Saturday 10th & Sunday 11th September 2016. The event is part of the national Heritage Open Days event.

 

The whole event was free and gave the opportunity to visit different locations around Southampton. The event was based around the Bugle Street area with heritage buses

linking to other venues across the City. The 2017 event will be held on 9th September, details to follow.
 

 
 
The event was sponsored by Southampton Heritage Federation and a sub committee is now planning a future event.
