Walking Tours of Prescott

Many towns boast an historic walking tour but few tours live up to the hype. But even non-history buffs will be impressed by the tour in Prescott, Ontario, Canada. This town is proud of its Heritage Walking Tour for good reason. It features impressive homes, churches, and military fortifications from Prescott’s years gone by.

Highlights of the charming Heritage Walking Tour include Fort Wellington, restored to its original 1846 year of establishment; the Stockade Barracks and Hospital Museum, the oldest surviving military building in the province of Ontario; and Duffy’s Hotel, a former tavern in the 1840s. Visiting the historic sites is particularly rewarding in the summer under the shade of the town’s tree-lined streets.
