Of Graves, Guns & Battles™
A tour of Battlebox & Fort Canning Hill                                           

 

Tour Synopsis

“The tombs of the Malay Kings are close at hand ….. and if it is my fate to die here, I shall take my place amongst them ” – Sir Stamford Raffles, 1823

Tread lightly, for treasures lie beneath a historic hill in the heart of the city - the spot where both 14th century Singapura and modern Singapore were born. Trace the rise and fall of great empires. Hear stories of rulers who commanded from the hill and the empire-builders who were buried on its slopes. Discover the world-changing story of a humble spice. Visit graves, a colonial fort and re-live one of the most important battles in history. Venture deep underground into the Battlebox, a former WWII command centre where the decision to surrender Singapore was made - spelling the start of the end of the mighty British Empire.  Don’t miss this newly curated experience of one of Singapore’s most charming nature parks.

Note: A large part of this tour is conducted on Fort Canning Hill with several flights of steps involved. Participants with mobility problems or parents with strollers may find this tour slightly challenging. Please call us for further clarifications.
