Description


If you look closely, you’ll find that Clifton Village is full of curiosities – medicinal trees, iconic buildings, literary references and the residences of many historical and influential people. Did you know that Birdcage Walk is not where you think it is? That in the late 1700s tuberculosis patients in the village were treated with cow breath (courtesy of a resident cow)? In a gentle stroll along Regent Street, Clifton Hill, Clifton Road, Victoria Square and Boyce’s Avenue, you’ll take in the impressive architecture and some curious stories behind the buildings.

You’ll also learn about some of Clifton’s medical stories and how the village has a veritable medicine cabinet on its street corners (mistletoe, maple and mulberry to name a few).
