Home to 25 British Governors, 4 Japanese Governors and 3 Chinese Chief Executives, the Hong Kong Governor’s House has certainly seen its far share of change. Built in 1855, under British rule, the original structure was influenced by the Colonial Renaissance movement, which was sweeping across Europe at the time. In the early 1940’s, under Japanese rule, the home went through an extensive remodel resulting in today’s more Japanese-neoclassical form.
Unfortunately, the Governor’s House is now only open to the public two days a year. But, that doesn’t mean we still can’t take a peak inside today!
