Sunday, October 23, 2022 - 14:00 to 15:30


NEW TOUR! Walk Sandy Hill’s shaded streets and you are likely to notice flagpoles punctuating the canopy. The downtown neighbourhood is home to no fewer than 20 embassies, high commissions, and ambassadorial residences — many located in Heritage Conservation Districts.

This tour will introduce several of them, and share stories from the past and present to transport you around the world. No plane ticket required!

GUIDE: Hilary Duff is a journalist and Sandy Hill resident who loves exploring her neighbourhood and learning about its history.
