Open Days offer an excellent chance to personally determine if a Bupa retirement village is the right fit for you, without the pressure of a one-on-one appointment. Our Open Days are relaxed and friendly, giving you time to soak in the warm atmosphere.

Here are some tips to help you get the most out of your Open Day.

3. Have a Stickybeak

Open Days offer the perfect opportunity to explore a villa or apartment, allowing you to visualise yourself living in the space.

Are you an avid hobbyist with lots of boxes of yarn, so you’ll need some extra storage? Do you prefer a higher floor to admire the view? You can keep all this in mind as you explore.
