1881 Heritage

1881 Heritage is an upmarket shopping mall built into the remains of the grand colonial era Marine Police Headquarters, constructed in 1884, is located in Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong.

The main building was originally a two-storey structure; an extra storey was added to the Main Building in the 1920s. The south-east and south-west wings of the main building served as married quarters.

The Signal Tower, commonly known as Round House, was constructed to provide time signals to ships in the harbour. Its use diminished in 1907 when the time ball apparatus was removed to Signal Hill, Kowloon.

A visit to 1881 Heritage will transport you to Victorian-era Hong Kong. From the 1880s to 1996, this was the headquarters of the Hong Kong Marine Police. Several buildings and artefacts of historical interest have been preserved and restored.

Tradition and innovation, past and present, 1881 Heritage is a real Hong Kong experience.
