Join us for the Port Hope House Tour Spring Walking Tours. Three tours are offered: A King Street tour and two tours of the Downtown Heritage District (North-South or East-West). Each tour is approximately 90 minutes and will have information on the homes, businesses, streets, and general history that has created the unique fabric of the town. Armed with a knowledgeable volunteer guide and a printed map, guests will enjoy a leisurely journey into the past. With so much content related to these tours, it is hard to contain it within the 90 minutes allotted. So, there is a corresponding self-guided app which can be downloaded for free prior to the tour via a website link. This houses additional historic photos and videos and all of the text related to each property to enhance the overall experience. It also has an audio component so if you missed some of the details on the tour, you can go back and re-walk it at any time. Proceeds support heritage projects in Port Hope.
