Sunday 13 Feb 2022 at 2pm – Working Class Early Mt Victoria: a guided walk

Mt Victoria Historical Society will take us on a tour of some of the 19th and early 20th century homes of the working classes who helped build our city and keep its cogs turning. Many of the houses they once lived in in Mt Victoria look almost the same today, and you will be able to imagine their lives behind those walls and beyond.

This walk was offered during Wellington Heritage Week and quickly booked out. Duration: Approximately 1.5 hours. Free. Numbers will be limited to 25. We will send an email reminder in late January and ask for RSVPs then.
