This is an iconic place to visit. As the oldest and best preserved 19th century town in Ontario, it’s a place full of history.

Where parliament first passed the 1793 Act Against Slavery and transformed the area into a haven for refugees on the Underground Railroad, you can now book a historic tour, or just bask in the architecture and quaint shops that line the main street. It’s also home to the Shaw festival, and where I had wonderful dairy free dark chocolate gelato.

As the day was full of sunshine and rain, we walked the streets, she looked in the shops, and after lunch and gelato we drove out, past the little cottage where Andrew and I spent our honeymoon fifteen years ago.
