Black & White Houses Neighbourhood Stroll: Adam Park Estate

The discovery tour of Adam Park Estate is a 2 hour morning walk.

Step back into a simpler, more gracious time when you visit the quiet Adam Park estate where black & white houses were built for the British civil service and members of the military.

In 1942, British defenders fought the last battle for Singapore before the Japanese occupation of Adam Park. This tour not only introduces you to the charming architectural features of black & white house, but also explains the war years.

Time permitting, we will walk to Adam Drive, the site of the Sime Road WW2 POW camp.

Note: We shall be viewing everything from the outside.

Fabulous tour of the Black and White houses

What a fabulous tour of the Black and White houses. Our guide Pavla was so knowledgeable and a wealth of information. I highly recommend Janes Tours, this is our second excursion with them and both have been excellent. Looking forward to the next one.

Black and White House Tour #must see

Truly a very informativ and interesting Tour, where you get a glimpse into earlier history matched with today colonial flair. Great houses and hosts make you feel home. The guide lets you know a bundle of history and inside Singapur live stories. Thank you. See you on the next tour.

Fabulous tour of colonial-era architecture

Fabulous tour of colonial-era architecture in Singapore. Hidden heavenly corners of beauty. A visit to various areas and styles of black and white, including to the interior of these beautiful houses. Our guide, Catalina, was so knowledgeable and interesting. With stories and personal experience. It was a pleasure to have her as a guide. Highly recommended.
