Church Tourism Week 2017

Celebrate and explore our outstanding architectural heritage through a nationwide series of events for all ages.

Between 21-30 July the silvered oak doors of our 350 buildings - and those of our partners - will be thrown open in celebration of our country's unique historic churches, chapels and ecclesiastic heritage.

Church Tourism Week invites people to explore and enjoy the UK's exceptional architectural heritage through a series of activities and events across the country.

Crispin Truman, CEO of The Churches Conservation Trust, says: “Church Tourism Week highlights the heritage of our extraordinary ancient churches, showcasing the fascinating stories, art and experiences they offer and inviting people to explore them in new ways."

There’s something for everyone, from music and theatre to our Champing™ church camping adventures, historic tours, family trails, craft activities, tower climbs and art exhibitions.
