MEETING PLACE: East end of Winchester Street (200 Winchester Street)

This tour of Winchester Street sponsored by the Cabbagetown Preservation Association in partnership with Heritage Toronto will take participants along the whole length of Winchester Street, one of Cabbagetown’s most important streets and tell its story: a lifeline over the Don River connecting Riverdale and Toronto, the institutions it connected with the city (Riverdale Park, Riverdale Zoo, the Necropolis, etc.), its streetcar, etc. Winchester Street is also the quintessential Cabbagetown street as most styles of Victorian architecture present in Toronto are seen on this street. Using the resources of the Cabbagetown People Program, the tour will also point out many remarkable people who made Winchester Street their home.


We offer free tours to students from local schools in the Spring and Fall (see our For Schools section). We also offer free tours to local community groups (e.g. seniors).

We can  offer private and corporate Cabbagetown People tours. There is a charge for these tours, similar to those given in other Toronto neighbourhoods and in other cities. The cost is $10 per person to a maximum of $100 for the group. Up to 15 people can be accommodated on a tour with one guide. Revenues are reinvested in our programs.

Please use our Contact section to request a tour. Advise us of your desired time, date, numbers of persons in your group, as well as your contact information.
