When I saw a tweet about this years Heritage Open Days it reminded me that I haven’t shared with you the visits that I made last year. I always meant to, so before another year roles on, here is my first visit. On the most perfect September day with bright blue sky and the last bit of warm summer air it was just perfect for exploring a couple of cultural gems in Warwickshire. First visit of the day was to Guys Cliffe House. It is something I drive past on the way into to Warwick and have heard about from photographers who often use it as a backdrop. I was visiting with my Dad who knew about the house and on the way provided me with some of the history.
As we walked round to the property it all started to get a little bit more spooky. There were crows flying around and it definitely cloaked the area with a more sinister feeling.
Heritage Open Days provide an opportunity to explore heritage near you completely free for four days in September. It’s a great opportunity to see some of the fantastic cultural gems that the British Isles has to offer, that might normally be closed to the public.
Discovering the hidden gems…..in Warwickshire!
