Take yourself for a walk!

The rich and varied history of Kingston’s Inner Harbour is barely visible to the naked eye. Through photos, maps, text and audio, the free “Life and Labour in the Inner Harbour” do-it-yourself walking tour aims to help you imagine the area as it was at various times in the past 350 years.

Each of the 10 stops features an audio clip no more than 5 minutes long that you can listen to while looking around you and at the images on your screen. The tour, produced in 2016, should take you something like an hour to complete. It starts at Gate 1 of the Leon’s Centre (corner of Place d’Armes and Ontario), proceeds north through Douglas Fluhrer Park, and ends at the corner of Cataraqui and Rideau streets.

Life and Labour in the Inner Harbour is one of several tours available for free via the Walking Tours of Kingston app.

Available in French and English. Download the Walking Tours of Kingston app at the Google Play Store or the App Store.
