Your guide to heritage open days.

A SELECTION of the North West's finest buildings, museums and churches are opening their doors to the public for free this weekend.

Chester Amphitheatre, the Joseph Williamson tunnels, the World of Glass in St Helens and Liverpool's County Sessions House are just some of the many attractions to be seen as part of the Heritage Open Day weekend.

The scheme, organised by the Civic Trust and funded by the National Heritage department, offers the chance to visit venues usually closed to the public.
