Downtown Discovery Tour

Peterborough's annual Heritage Hunt is a chance to test your knowledge of the city's historic downtown architecture, and win great prizes doing it.

The contest consists of identifying the location of 34 architectural details on various buildings within the area bordered by Water, Aylmer, Brock and Charlotte streets. All details are clearly visible from public areas.map of downtown showing Brock Street, Water Street, King Street and Aylmer Street
