Civic District

Civic District

The Birthplace of Modern Singapore

Home to some of Singapore’s most notable historic buildings and spaces, the Civic District is a thriving arts, cultural and lifestyle precinct.

Go on a historical and cultural trail around the district, which will bring you to some of Singapore’s most historically important landmarks such as the former Supreme Court and City Hall, Old Parliament House, and the Padang.

It’s easy to explore, thanks to pedestrianised areas including the Anderson Bridge and Empress Place, as well as an abundance of shade-giving trees and wide, open lawns. There are also convenient connections to Fort Canning Park, the Bras Basah-Bugis district and the Marina Bay waterfront.
