More Details

After meeting outside the Sogo Department Store, on the corner of Hennessy and East Point Roads, we will walk to Victoria Park. Here we will discuss the development of Causeway Bay in the early British period in Hong Kong’s history. Along the way we will visit the statue of Queen Victoria.

From Victoria Park, we pass by Queen’s College, one of Hong Kong’s premier government boy’s schools, where the evolution of English-medium education from the nineteenth century onwards will be briefly discussed. Then we will walk up to the very old Tin Hau Temple, and then afterwards proceed to the Lin Fa Kung, where the annual Tai Hang Fire Dragon Festival takes place.

From the Lin Fa Kung we will proceed via a small but interesting Fook Tak Chi, to the St. Paul’s Hospital compound, briefly taking in the St. John Ambulance Headquarters Building and the ornate, Chinese-style St. Mary’s Anglican Church.

Within the grounds of St. Paul’s Hospital, we will visit the lovely old chapel of Christ the King, and then proceed along Leighton Road to the Po Leung Kuk, established in 1878 to protect women and girls. After a brief pause at St. Margaret’s Church on Broadwood Road we will finish the walk up at the marvellously-unexpected Racecourse Fire Memorial, hidden away on the hillside behind the Hong Kong Stadium.

Details on where to meet for the walk will be sent to you once your booking and payment is received.
