Discover Heritage

Map Guides

Take yourself on a tour of historic Vancouver neighbourhoods

VHF has created a series of historic neighbourhood map guides. Available here to download and print or to use on a desktop or mobile device, each map guide provides a walkable route to follow and learn about local history and heritage places.

Select copies of printed map guides are available at the VHF Office located at 303 – 3102 Main Street. Guides currently in print: Historic Chinatown, Historic West Hastings and Historic Japanese Canadian District. Map guides will not be mailed. If you are unable to pick up a copy during our office hours, please contact for other possible arrangements or find the PDF versions below.


If you would like to help us update one of our map guides or get new copies printed by becoming a sponsor, please get in touch!
