Great for families, educational for the kids (and the adults). Tour the castle, try some food cooked in the kitchen, see how they used to warm their beds. Walk the grounds and take in the scenery, eat at the restaurant.

I joined a scheduled tour for an informative and delightful enactor-led walk of the gardens, complete with historical explanations. I even got to pick some raspberries as I was strolling. Do take advantage of this free garden tour during the growing and... More

This was one of my most fun visits to a historic castle. Beautiful and interesting and the staff is very informative I loved every minute of it and would welcome the chance to go back again and again. Wish I could work there.

Took my now 86 year old mother to brunch there and she was tickled. It was such a beautiful place and the food was very different but not offensive at all. It was like walking into a time warp. It was great and I'd go again in a minute. A must see!!

We visited the castle yesterday and we truly enjoyed, even my 3 year old. The tour is guided and all the history about the castle and family is explained, allowing us to step back in time. The grounds and garden are nice too. After the visit go to the park behind the castle and enjoy the view of the harbour.... More

If you are looking for a place to have your wedding, then go to Dundurn Castle. The flowers will knock you out. Book soon and have the view of the harbor behind your party or the flowers in front.. John .
