Heritage Toronto Kicks Off its 20th Season of Tours
April 30, 2014
Heritage Toronto is celebrating 20 years of leading historic walking tours of Toronto!
In addition to walks such as The Mansions of Jarvis Street and Portuguese Toronto, they’ve added a bus tour (Before Toronto: An Archaeological Bus Tour of Our City’s First 13,000 Years) and several bike tours.
Some of the walks are free (donations encouraged) while some, like the Pride Walk: Discovering Toronto’s LGBTQ Heritage, are $20 and led by the Gay and Lesbian Archives.
Whether you’re a local, new to the city or a tourist, they are a great way to explore the city and a chance to learn about the spaces you pass by on a regular basis.
One of the highlights is a tour of Kensington Market, which has a really rich history and is one of the last neighbourhoods in Toronto to remain mostly as it was over the last eighty years.
Tours run from the end of April to the end of October.
