British Heritage Tour
Availability: all weekdays, but limited.
Timings: 8 am – 1 pm (approx)
The legacy of over 150 years of British presence in Bangalore is hard to miss if you are in the city. For example, The broad roads laid out over 200 years ago for horse carriages, bullock carts, and horsemen do a fine job of carrying the chaotic traffic of this day too.
The British brought to Bangalore promenades, parks, churches, schools, hospitals, pubs, clubs, shopping centers, dance halls, race course, golf range, cricket etc where there was none before.
In this specially curated tour, we will explore in detail many of the fascinating landmarks of that era as well as sneak a peek at a few more that have left an indelible mark on the cityscape of Bangalore
You will also learn how events of that era have shaped a modest town become one of the largest cities in India in a few generations; how the capital of an unknown state has become the outsourcing capital of the world.
Half Day City Tour lasts for about 5 hours and costs INR 4500 per person.
