Guelph Arts Council launches Historical Walking Tours season (2018)

News Release

Guelph, ON – April 20, 2018 – On the same weekend as Doors Open Guelph, Guelph Arts Council launches its 2018 season of Historical Walking Tours. The tours began on Sunday April 22 at 2 pm with Where Guelph Began, which left from Juice Inc., 25 Waterloo Ave., at the corner of Dublin Street. Cost was $5/person.

For over 30 years, Guelph Arts Council has promoted the cultural heritage of Guelph by offering six different walking tours on selected Sundays from April to October (excluding July). Delivered by a dedicated group of volunteer heritage enthusiasts, the tours are an opportunity for tourists and locals to learn about Guelph’s history while taking in the beautiful architectural and natural features of the city. 

Available on each tour, and at Guelph Arts Council, The Bookshelf, and Guelph Civic Museum are tour-specific booklets of historical information and architectural drawings, perfect for self-guided tours and keepsakes. The booklets are $5 each. Downloadable booklets are also available.

Each tour starts at 2 pm and runs approximately two hours. Tours run rain or shine, with cancellations only in extreme weather.
