2021 House Tour
A New Way to Open the Door

The New Port Hope House Tour
Reimagined.

Even though we can't take you inside houses in person this year, we want you to experience the stories and histories of some of Port Hope's most iconic neighbourhoods and properties.

Virtual House Tour


Experience the personality, renovations, art, decor, and stories of a few properties in greater detail.

For 10 days in October, you can get an in-depth virtual tour of 12 historical properties in Port Hope. The videos not only show you the nooks and crannies of each property, but also share home owner interviews about the buildings, interior design and decor, lifestyle, art, and more!

The virtual tour is now over, but you never know when you might get another chance to see it. Plus, we've already started planning for the 2022 House Tour, and it's going to be great!

You'll find schools, churches, manors, cottages, and coach houses in a multitude of architectural styles, and learn about the merchants, lawyers, harbour masters, and politicians who lived in them.

You'll also learn about some of Port Hope's strangest and most famous inhabitants, including a tightrope walker, a dentist, a treasure hunter, and a nuclear scientist.

Walking tours will return in 2022.
