Civic District – From Beginning to Now


Singapore’s establishment as a trading post in Southeast Asia by the British India Company in 1819 left a strong colonial heritage and paved the way for numerous European-style buildings lining the banks of the Singapore River in the heart of the Civic District. From impressive columned and domed buildings to the numerous bridges that straddle the Singapore River, these iconic structures give much of downtown Singapore its character and provide a constant reminder of the nation’s history. Travel back to the colonial era with our guides in this exploratory tour of the Civic District and learn about Singapore’s historical, architectural and cultural heritage as you take in some of the most famous landmarks and monuments commemorating prominent historical figures such as Sir Stamford Raffles, the founder of modern Singapore.
