About City Boundary Marker
When Hong Kong Island was occupied by Britain in January 1841, there were 16 villages. In 1843, Britain created the city of Victoria covering Sheung Wan, Central and Wan Chai. The government later erected boundary stones on Hong Kong Island marking the city limits. Each stone bears the inscription 'City Boundary 1903'.

The seven boundary stones marking the area of the former Victoria city:
  • Victoria Road
  • Pok Fu Lam Road
  • Hatton Road
  • Old Peak Road
  • Magazine Gap Road (disappeared in June 2007 during slope renovation work: http://www.scmp.com/article/609775/one-our-historic-city-boundary-stones-missing)
  • Bowen Road
  • Wong Nai Chung Road



Interesting Spots Nearby:
  • Hatton Road is one of the starting points to the peak which takes around 30min.
