On And Off the Wall: History & Arts Tour

Shopping and eating on the most bountiful 300 feet of downtown real estate is a perfect partner to a day of soaking in the art collections and historic buildings located in two of Windsor’s neighbourhoods – Downtown Windsor and Sandwich. Experience our street art along Maiden Lane or explore the Art Gallery of Windsor.  Top it off in Sandwich Towne for a bite to eat and a visit to one of our local craft breweries along the Barrels Bottles and Brews trail.

Artist Alley & Maiden Lane

A public art project called Free 4 Walls is turning downtown alleys into outdoor galleries. Wild fonts, eruptions of colour, psychedelic or abstract, surreal or pop art, the backstreet dances with paint and creativity, sometimes two storeys high.
