About Behind Closed Doors Urbex

Finding hidden secrets…

Why are the doors closed if there’s nothing behind them worth seeing? If there’s a way in I’ll take it, take a look around and take some pictures. It’s amazing what you can find behind closed doors.

All the photos on this website are taken at locations that are generally considered to be off limits to the public. Forgotten and abandoned places often hold stunning architecture, left to decay. The art of visiting forgotten places is called Urban Exploration, or Urbex for short.

So, you break into places?

No, absolutely not! I will never cause any damage in order to gain access to a property, that would be illegal. I will only ever use existing access points. If there is no open access point available I will simply move on.

Where are these places? Can you tell me the location of…?

In order to safeguard the locations I visit from damage or theft, I may use a code-name rather than the real property name or address.  For the same reason I will not give out locations or access details for any of the places I have visited… So don’t ask ;)
