41 Berkeley Walking Tours

Berkeley’s hidden neighborhoods and architectural treasures come to life in this authoritative guidebook. Discover 1,500 noteworthy buildings and their backgrounds, legacy of the city’s fascinating 150-year history.

41 Berkeley Walking Tours: Architectural Walks Through the University Town is BAHA’s new, completely revised and updated replacement for the popular 41 Walking Tours of Berkeley, Cal.

This book includes entirely new walks, with a short history of each area and a brief description of each building. Each walking tour receives a two-page spread with an introduction, map, and photo of a representative building. Some pages offer tips for detours to nearby attractions.

In addition, the book provides a concise history of Berkeley, a résumé of its prominent architects and builders, and a pictorial compendium of common architectural styles.
