Behind doors of majestic buildings and some more unusual options
Doors Open Day Saturday, September 8, city wide, 10am to 4pm. Free, visit www.bristoldoorsopenday.org
If you are the kind of person who likes having a nose in other people's houses then this should be right up your street.
For one day only, you have the opportunity to see inside some of Bristol's most important and impressive buildings, many of which are not normally open to the general public.
Now in its 19th year, Bristol Doors Open Day will see buildings such as Royal Fort House, Colston Hall, the newly refurbished Bristol Old Vic and even Avonmouth & Royal Portbury Docks opened up for tours.

Buildings are open across the city from Bedminster to Brislington, Westbury and the West End.
But it's not just the majestic buildings you might expect. If you've ever wanted to find out more about Bristol Sewage Treatment's eco-friendly works, how to make fertiliser out of sewage sludge, and the waste gases generated to power the plant there is a 90-minute tour. Other quirkier options include the Julian Trust Nightshelter in Little Bishop Street. This is the home of the charity that for 25 years has each day provided shelter and food for Bristol's rough sleepers.
Many of the venues are within walking distance from the centre of the city or can be accessed by a special free bus service.
