Woking Palace - Heritage Open Day tours 12th and 13th September 2015

Special Guided Tours at Woking Palace to celebrate Heritage Open Days on 12th and 13th September

This year Heritage Open Days coincide with the final archaeological excavations at Woking Palace and the Friends of Woking Palace are therefore arranging a very different celebration.
As part of their Heritage Lottery Funded project "Woking Palace and its Park" the Friends of Woking Palace are offering Special Pre-booked Guided Tours for a limited number of people to see the trenches and finds while excavations are in progress at 10.30am and 1.00pm on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th September. Hoe Bridge School will be providing a mini bus shuttle service from the school to Woking Palace for these special tours and therefore parking will be available in designated areas at the school.

Tickets are free - but booking is essential
Book your place now by
e-mail to or by phoning 07722 299026

As this will be the last year of excavations at Woking Palace this is a very special opportunity to discover more about your local heritage. No other access to the site is possible during Heritage Open Days.

At the end of the excavations there will be the usual Special Open Day on Sunday 27th September when you can come along to see the finished trenches before they are filled in.
