I visited Willistead Manor last December. It was like stepping back a hundred years ago looking at all the Christmas decorations. This manor was built by the Walker Family and left to the city for all to enjoy. We are so lucky to have so many beautiful places in our city that we are able to visit.

Enclosed by a sturdy stone and wrought-iron fence, with impressive entrance gates, Willistead Manor Park is a lovely and relaxing spot in the heart of Olde Walkerville. The spacious grounds feature clumps of mature trees, winding pathways, and park benches upon which to relax. The park includes an accessible washroom and a small playground area. The centrepiece of the park... More

Very Gorgeous Manor nestled away in the park. Didn't know if they did tours of the Manor I was informed they held events there such as weddings and the like but it would be nice if they allowed tours. was sitting in the back and it looked like there were broken windows, what a pity if someone ruined them purposely.

I remember touring Willistead Manor one Christmas maybe 25 or more years ago and I was delighted to be able to do it again this past December. In addition to the opportunity to experience the history and beauty of this lovely landmark, the seasonal tour offers a spectacle of lovely Christmas trees and festive holiday decor on display throughout the...

The Willistead Manor is worth seeing if you get the chance, especially at Christmas time when all of the rooms are decorated. A gorgeous place for a wedding.

Good menu and great service although my entree had a touch to much salt taste for "my" liking I truly enjoyed it and ingredients were seemed fresh and it was different than the normal fair. Only fear of my review is I "think" this is the right place that uses local ingredients--I will double check.

I took a tour of Willistead Manor, and it is amazing. The detail work that went into making that house. My fiancee and I even went to a Halloween party fund raiser that they had last year. If you get a chance to tour it, you should.

Just held my daughter's wedding at this historical gem. Ceremony outdoors in the gardens by the fountain, dinner in the upstairs dining room, and reception all throughout. A very cozy, intimate and elegant gathering for a smaller wedding (100 guests). A wonderful time was had by all. Staff and hosts all take such pride in this treasure. Christmas tours are... More

Did I break a window or something? The burger claiming to be "WHAT THE BIG MAC SHOULD BE" wasn't even sniffing a Big Mac! I expected MUCH MORE from Walkerville.
