For over five glorious weeks, March 11 – April 17, Charleston will spring to life with blooming color, enchanting sea breezes and the Festival of Houses and Gardens. The 2021 Festival will be a bit different this year as we have re-imagined it to accommodate COVID measures with smaller audience sizes, more outdoor programming and social distancing protocols in place.

Schedule of Events:

9:15 am - 11:30 am: Morning History Walk

Led by Charleston’s most experienced guides, these two-hour walking tours of the Old & Historic District provide the perfect background for your stay in Charleston, detailing its notable history and architecture and some of Charleston’s most significant historic resources. No private sites or interiors are included on these tours.

All Morning History Walks depart from 108 Meeting Street (Shop Historic Charleston).

Check-in for the walk at 9:15 am. Tours depart promptly at 9:30 am and end at 11:30 am. Please bring your order confirmation to check-in.
