Edinburgh Doors Open Day

Each September, "Doors Open Days" are held throughout Scotland, as part of the Council of Europe's Heritage Days.

Edinburgh's Civic Trust, the Cockburn Association, helps to promote and finance this day, with support from Edinburgh World Heritage.

in  2005, the event attracted about 70,000 visitors.

This year, the owners more than 60 public buildings in and around Edinburgh will open their buildings, free of charge, to the public.

These include:

-  The new Storytelling Centre, Royal Mile
