About Us

Halifax Heritage Tours CIC has been set up and is run by volunteers who are passionate about the heritage of ‘Magic Halifax’.  Any fees/donations generated by tickets will be put towards community and education projects, to raise awareness and appreciation of the abundant wealth of heritage in Halifax, enabling everyone to experience, appreciate and be inspired by our heritage, improving wellbeing and nurturing a sense of pride and ownership in the Community. Thank you for your support. 

We’re thrilled to introduce you to our Halifax Heritage team:

Volunteers

Our fantastic volunteers are the heart of Halifax Heritage. Without them it wouldn’t be possible to provide our walking and bus tours and raise funds for educational and community programmes. 

They are wonderful ambassadors for the town, its abundant heritage and equally enjoy hearing all your anecdotes and memories too!
