Everyone has a story to tell
The Hidden History Walking Tours are a great way to see the Scarborough area and a nice way to learn the stories of the past. The Hidden History Walking Tour is a wonderful community project that brings together the unheard stories and gives them new life.

Proudly brought to you by Chronicle Scarborough and the City of Stirling, these interactive self-guided tours have become very popular.

It's easy to take a tour. All you need is a smartphone or a tablet with a QR reader and a pair of headphones. Simply download the self guided tour map and start walking. When you see the blue street poles with the Hidden History signs just scan the QR code to unlock the secret. Your smartphone or tablet becomes a portal to Scarborough's unheard stories of love, tragedy and memories.

The self-guided Hidden History Walking Tours take about fifty minutes to complete but you can take it at your own pace. There are no limits to the number to people that can take the tour at one time. Take it by yourself of with a group of family or friends.

Starting at the Amphitheatre, take in such sights as the beautiful ocean and beach, the limestone turrets, the clock tower, the surf club, the Esplanade and 'Peters By The Sea'. You can even add your own story at the time capsule, at the entrance to the Rendezvous Hotel, the final point of the tour.

The Chronicle Scarborough is a collection of personal histories and memories of life, brought together to give you an experience of the past. If you have a story of Scarborough life that you would like to share, go to Tell Your Story and submit a description.

So, head on down to Scarborough Beach and enjoy a Hidden History Tour of Scarborough's seaside strip. It's fun, it's interesting and it's free.

Check out the City of Stirling website or the Chronicle Scarborough website for further details and updates about the Hidden History Walking Tours.
