We’re happy to be back after the three-year ‘pandemic pause’!

This is what the ticket guidebook looks like — it contains information about each home on the tour, along with a map to each of the locations. You must present this booklet at each residence to gain entry.

Heritage New West (aka New Westminster Heritage Preservation Society) has lined up 12 exciting heritage venues.

Seven of the 12 heritage venues are residences that are NEW TO THE TOUR this year, in styles ranging from early cottage to grand Victorian. A few favourites will make an encore appearance — and as always, we are proud to include New West’s beloved Irving House as our mainstay in 41 years of Homes Tours.

This year’s tour includes a grand Moody Park Edwardian residence, once home to a long-time city councillor, a stately Victorian era Queen Anne styled mansion in Queen’s Park, a fascinating Brow of the Hill home whose first owner is referenced in a Wikipedia entry, a charming cottage awarded the Heritage Shield in 2011 for its exterior restoration work, two orphaned cottages rescued and relocated to a new home; safe from demolition under the watchful eyes of the Davidson House and an amazing uptown transformation of a 1902 home. There’s also a beautifully renovated Queen’s Avenue house designed by G.W. Grant, a Hamilton Street favourite, extensively restored and repaired, and an updated iconic St. Patrick house.

See our Homes Tour previews for: Breeze-Hurst and
McAdam House.

While tickets sales are mainly online, we are also selling ticket guidebooks at Royal City Colours (cash only, please).

When you buy your online ticket, bring a digital or print receipt of your ticket purchase to Royal City Colours to pick up your ticket guidebook – it’s your map and passport to all the homes on tour.
