About the tour
Lui Seng Chun is an old Chinese shophouse (tong lau) designed and built by architect W.H. Bourne in 1931. It was originally owned by Mr. Lui Leung, a renowned businessman who moved to Hong Kong from Taishan county in Guangdong province
In 2000, the Antiquities Advisory Board designated Lui Seng Chun a Grade I historic building. With the vision of preserving the building and to contribute to society, the Lui family decided to donate the building to the Government in the same year.
The Lui Seng Chun building was included in Batch I of the "
Revitalising Historic Buildings Through Partnership Scheme
" initiated by the Government in 2008 and, after a bidding process, Hong Kong Baptist University was selected to conserve the building and convert it into a Chinese medicine healthcare centre. The revitalisation work was completed in early 2012 and the clinic, Hong Kong Baptist University School of Chinese Medicine – Lui Seng Chun, commenced operations in April 2012.
This guided tour is for a small group and registration confirmation will be emailed to you.
