Starting again in May and continuing through October, ROMwalks are a free resource for Torontonians and non-locals alike to learn more about the detailed history of the city's varied neighbourhoods and landmarks. The guided tours will be offered every Wednesday evening and Sunday afternoon, and led by informed Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) volunteers.

Designed to highlight architecture and heritage of each area, walks will highlight the former grandeur of Jarvis Street, the old Town of York, the distilleries and factories of the east waterfront, the workers' homes of Cabbagetown, the tombstones of St. James' Cemetery and the Necropolis, and much more.
