Explore Brampton rich history with virtual Downtown Heritage Walking Tour


Published July 9, 2021 at 4:16 pm


Brampton’s Downtown Heritage Walking Tour has gone virtual this year.

Residents can gaze upon some of the city’s historic architecture, tread the path walked by Bramptonians more than a century ago and effectively journey through time to experience the city’s past.

In addition to the cultural impact, people who check into five of the ten specified locations could win a Brampton Food Tour with Suresh Doss, host of Culinary Suburbia and a food, drink and travel writer.

The walking tour is exclusively on your mobile device. As it’s text and email based, there is no app to download.

The City of Brampton has a rich legacy of cultural heritage resources. Much of Brampton’s heritage is linked to its historical roots as the “Flowertown of Canada” which has been revived and re-established under the City’s Flower City Strategy.

Another important piece of Brampton’s history is its past role as the capital or county seat of the former Peel County.
