It would be considered a high-end shopping area, yet the decoration / mini-performances are what make this complex stand-out. We were there for new year & it had amazing themed decor and a ballet performance taking place, while they have various other things throughout the year.

We had a walk around the surrounding but didn't have time to visit any stores. There were a big crowd and people! A group of people were taking photos with female models which dressed up in Japanese female cartoon characters. Time to strike a pose! The Christmas lights around the square looked amazing at night!

A small, charming heritage, attraction complex worthy of a relaxing visit! It's FREE! It's conveniently located right across the HK Cultural Center by the Avenue of Stars/Waterfront Promenade, the Harbor City, Bus Terminal, MTR Station... It has a very nice courtyard with a fountain, grand staircases, historical (and educational) Time-Ball Tower, Terrace Tree Garden, several restaurants/cafés, high-end shops, and a... More

a place full of festive ambiance like starting from Dec, it's been decorated with Xmas trees, fairies, etc, i always visit there on Chinese New Year, Happy Valentine's Day, Christmas as the property decorates the space with proper pops that attracts me for photo-taking at least 1 hour each time.

Given another opportunity to visit HK again, I came back to 1881 Heritage to check out what theme they might have picked for Autumn. And I wasn't disappointed. It's basically just a place with lots of shops and a very good place to take great pictures, I'd say. If you aren't fond of just enjoying that, then don't bother coming... More

I lived in HK for 5 years, 20 years ago and never noticed this place it was fronted by a high stone wall. There is a valid historical building here that is now available to the public now that's good. But the glitzy front is over the top and just filled with high priced shops. It looks awful. There must... More

This is on the way from TST Station to the ferry. So whenever I have to take the ferry from TST, I always stop by to check out the place. I've never shopped here so as to most of the tourist who visit the place. The last time I visit this place was early November and it was already full... More

On our way to dinner the other day, we walked by 1881 to check out the shops and Christmas lights and it was magnificent...such a beautiful area to explore and for pictures. There are high end stores everywhere you go in Hong Kong so for shopping, it is a good place but not unique. The look and feel though is... More

When I discovered Heritage 1881, I said "wow......." because the place is in circle and has high class branded shops and top restaurants. The view is nice especially at night. It has unique design of its place, it has like a tree top or tree house in the middle, leading to a restaurant and the garden.

This place has one of only a small number of operational Time Balls in the world. At 1:00PM every day, the ball is dropped down a flagpole-style tower to indicate the time. Time balls used to be a common way of allowing sea captains to set the time on their chronometers, which was essential for navigation. This is educational and... More
