VHF has produced a number of map guides which explore Vancouver’s diverse historic neighbourhoods. Current guides are available in print from the locations listed below. Many of our older guides are out of print, but work well on tablet computers.
FREE West Hastings Walking Tours with John Atkin
We are once again partnering with the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association to offer a series of short lunch time walking tours starting in July. John will lead these 45-minute walks starting at The Perch, Lot 19 on West Hastings Street (at Howe Street). Registration for each days’ tour will be held at the meeting point beginning at 12 noon.
The walks will explore the history of one of Vancouver’s most fascinating corridors which has evolved from financial centre and private clubs, to bustling shopping district, to densely populated office space.
July 8, 15, 22 and August 5, 19, 26
Meet at The Perch, Lot 19 (W. Hastings St. at Howe St.)
Registration begins at 12 noon, walk at 12:15pm
