Two Welwyn Hatfield attractions will be opening for free during the national Heritage Open Weekend.

The annual event will see Welwyn Roman Baths opening for free on Saturday, September 8, and Mill Green Museum opening on Sunday, September 9.

At the Roman Baths, there will be an activity for children looking at the role of Vestals in Roman society, and Welwyn Archaeological Society will be on hand to talk about the fascinating ancient history of the area.

At Mill Green, visitors will have the chance to go on a behind the scenes tours of the museum, offering an insight into the museum’s social history collection and areas not normally open to the public.

There will also be craft demonstrators on site and cream teas will be on sale.

The annual nostalgic Murphy Radio Day event also takes place at Mill Green on Sunday, featuring a display of vintage televisions and radios manufactured by one of the Welwyn Garden City’s major 20th century employers.

The events are running from 2pm-5pm at both sites.
