• Welcome to Gosport Heritage

13th to 22nd September 2019

We hope that you enjoy all the events that you visit.  If you could spare a couple of minutes to complete a feedback form, just click the button.

All your feedback, both good and bad, helps us to plan for next year’s events.

Did you know Gosport was involved in the very first pilot events in the country in 1992? So we’ll be 27 years old this year!

This year there are over 70 events including many new ones!


25 Yrs of HODS


Unfortunately the printed programme has a number of small errors, numbers 14, 46, 51, 52, 53 and 56, this one is correct including 2 extra who registered after the programme went to print.

Volunteers welcome…

Are you interested in helping with Gosport Heritage Open Days?  Our friendly local team are planning the programme throughout the year so we need more volunteer helpers now (or whenever you have time)!  

For more information and to apply, please view our Volunteers page.

People power

This is an opportunity to tell the stories of people who have changed and shaped your world.

We want to know about movements that have been created, friendships forged, communities strengthened and buildings saved.  We want to know about the people who have been instrumental in creating your Heritage Open Days, and the benefits and changes this has brought to your community.

People Power comes in all forms: rebel songs, protest marches, conversations over tea and cake in a church hall.  We want to highlight all of these and more.

Tell us your stories..

But first things first.  To make 2019 a true celebration of both HODs and People Power, we need to hear from you! Click the image to the left to tell us your stories.

We try to add some new and interesting heritage events each year, whilst still retaining the ever popular oldies like HMS Sultan.  We’d love to hear your ideas for potential new events.  Share your thoughts with us and we’ll try to make it happen.

Gosport and its People During the Great War

This work consists of three large heritage-based art projects, focusing on the people of Gosport. It covers the town’s important role in the First World War.  Click the image on the right to find out more and to download the booklet.

Here’s a short film that Media students from St Vincent College made in 2017  to give a flavour of Heritage Open Days in Gosport.
