This year marks our 45th annual Geranium Heritage House Tour!
Come explore London’s historic Wortley Village in the heart of Old South. This year’s tour will take you into heritage houses between Wortley Road and Ridout Street South, a neighbourhood of beautifully maintained single-family homes in a variety of styles and ages dating back as far as the mid-1800s. Your ticket includes guided interior tours of seven private heritage homes.
Ticket price also includes refreshments and an informative keepsake guidebook featuring a map of this self-paced walk (approximately 2.5 hours). The Tour starts at the London Normal School – now the Wortley YMCA – at 165 Elmwood Avenue East (use entrance at rear parking lot) where you’ll pick up your guidebook and enjoy an interior tour. Potted red geraniums donated by Parkway Gardens mark the homes open for interior visits – hence the name of our tour! Our 70+ volunteers will welcome you with warm smiles and a treasure trove of knowledge.
