Since Sir Stamford Raffles' historic visit in 1822 at Raffles Square, the precinct is now known as Raffles Place, a transformed central business district filled with a rich heritage for the arts and culture, and a place for many visitors to shop, dine and unwind after working hours.

The Heritage and ART Tours

To explore Raffles Place through the lens of art and history, Raffles Place Alliance brings visitors to embark on their exclusive audio tours - The Heritage and ART tours.

Heritage Tour

The Heritage Tour covers five zones and starts near the Singapore River ‚Äď an integral part of Raffles Place which brings life to the precinct. Then, visitors will head on to Chulia Street to learn about how different ethnic groups and architecture evolved in the surrounding areas. Next, visitors can move towards Battery Road to learn more about the beginnings of Raffles Place and explore the glitz and glamour of Collyer Quay nearby.

At the last stop, the tour brings visitors to Market Street, where Raffles Place’s unique modern architecture grazes the landscape and features picturesque opportunities for locals and tourists alike.

ART Tour

After the Heritage Tour, visitors can further explore the thriving district as they partake in the ART Tour. On the ART Tour, visitors can dive into the wonderful works of art that surround the precinct as they immerse in bejewelled pieces from talented artists from Singapore and artists from around the world. With interesting sculptures and installations also found in Raffles Place, visitors can experience art through fresh eyes and learn insights behind the creation of these masterpieces.
