Over the weekend of 23-25th July, The Heritage Alliance is running a project aiming to encourage people to discover their local environment: “hidden places, extraordinary spaces and the stories they have to tell.”

Building on the tradition of Open House in London, and on Heritage Open Days/Doors Open around the country to open up both the historic and the new, making hidden architectural treasures accessible, uncovering the buildings that express Britain’s diverse culture, and creating new audiences for heritage and architecture. via

Discovering Places will launch over Open Weekend, the Cultural Olympiad’s annual UK-wide celebration that marks the count down to the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
