Serving as the first-of-its-kind mothership launchpad, Capitol Singapore will be the starting and ending point of the seven-stop tour that will take you through iconic heritage landmarks – Capitol Theatre at Capitol Singapore, Hill Street Fire Station (Singapore’s oldest surviving fire station), Fort Canning (where early colonial settlers resided), Armenian Street (already in existence before 1835), The National Museum (Singapore’s oldest museum with a history that dates back to 1849) and Padang (which has borne witness to key events throughout Singapore’s history), the traditional coffee shops of Purvis Street and finally CHIJMES, which houses two national monuments – CHIJMES Hall and Caldwell House – before looping back to Capitol Singapore and passing by two of its conservation buildings, Stamford House and Capitol Building.

Fun facts

The history of Stamford House dates back to 1904. Did you know that this ornate building was designed in the Venetian Renaissance style favoured during the Victorian era and was gazetted for conservation in 2007? It is now part of The Capitol Kempinski Hotel Singapore. The adjacent Capitol Building and Capitol Theatre, which are also part of Capitol Singapore, were built in the 1930s and survived the Japanese Occupation! You may not know this but Capitol Theatre’s architecture was inspired by  Roxy Theatre in New York and during 1930s, it was the largest auditorium and one of the finest theatres in Singapore!

CHIJMES, home to various Michelin-starred restaurants, top cafes and bars, was originally the Convent of the Holy Infant Jesus (CHIJ), a premier girls’ school established in 1854 and run by French Catholic nuns. The nuns also established an orphanage for unwanted children (most of them were female babies) who were left at the gates – now known as CHIJMES’ Gate of Hope. CHIJMES got its current name with M-E-S added to remind us of the sound of the convent’s chiming tower bells. The property houses two  national monuments – Caldwell House and CHIJMES Hall which is also known as the chapel, with the former being the second oldest building in Singapore.
