Architectural Walking Tours with the Preservation Alliance
Take an award-winning stroll through Philadelphia
Explore Philadelphia’s architectural past, present and future during an award-winning guided walking tour with the Preservation Alliance.
Named the “best reason to take a walk” in the 2008 “Best of Philly” list, the Architectural Walking Tours are led by a knowledgeable group of volunteers. Each tour will take you through various sections of the city, including Society Hill, Rittenhouse Square, Fishtown, Girard Estate and Chestnut Hill. Along the way you’ll learn about region’s architectural heritage and social history.
Themed tours are also available, such as the “Littlest Streets,” “Art Deco Philadelphia,” “Skyscrapers Old and New,” and “Ben Franklin’s Philadelphia.”
All tours last between 1-1/2 to 2 hours.
Architectural Walking Tours run May through October on Saturdays at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m. (with 10 a.m. tours available September – October) and Wednesdays at 6 p.m. (May through August only).
Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for students with ID and free for children 10 and under accompanied by an adult. Tour groups are limited to the first 25 people to arrive.
