Take a trip back in time when horse & buggies, sailing ships & steam trains were the mode of transport, men wore day suits and ladies were seen gathering for afternoon tea in their Sunday best. Delve into the eclectic history of Hamilton and surrounding areas!
Join your guides as they take you on an insightful stroll through the rich history of the area. Learn about the unique architecture, the hidden gems that still exist, the dark secrets that lurk in backyards, alleys and warehouses along the way…even the occasional story of those long passed whose Spirits still inhabit the neighbourhood. You may never look at the town the same way again!
Historical Walks take place in the warmer months – generally June through October. To be notified early for these walks (and any other events), please add your email to the subscription list (link on the right sidebar).
All walks run approx. 1 to 1.5 hrs at a cost of $10 for Adults, $5 for Children 6 to 16 (must be accompanied by an adult 19+); limited to 20 people per tour. Advance reservations are recommended prior to the walk date (we can accept exact cash or credit card on the day, however we cannot guarantee your space).
Private tours for groups of 10 or more require a 50% non-refundable deposit at least one week in advance. Private tours available almost any time (preferably when regular tours are not run). Please contact us to enquire.
Children under 16 must be accompanied by an Adult. Historical Walk Routes are generally fully accessible unless otherwise noted. Please wear comfortable footwear and dress for the weather; some ground may be uneven. “Rain or shine” – within reason (thunderstorms & high winds are an obvious exception).
There are no refunds. If we cancel the walk, paid reservations will be credited for the next walk.
