My Pek Kio Heritage Tour [English] (6 April 2024)
Be inspired by this quaint and charming “Little England” neighbourhood.
About this Event

My Pek Kio Heritage Tour follows the footsteps of the English settlers who transformed this once hot and humid corner of Singapore into a “Little England” where century-old churches, temples and mosques have coexisted harmoniously for generations. Historical landmarks and religious institutions in Pek Kio include Red Swastika Society, Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple, Leong San See and Christ Church.

As the “sporting capital of Singapore”, Pek Kio hosted the island’s first horse race in 1843, the first golf course Royal Singapore Golf Course in 1913, the first neighbourhood sports centre Farrer Park Athletic Centre in the 1950s. Many national sporting icons including Ang Peng Siong and Quah Kim Song have trained in the fields and pools in Pek Kio.
