We attended a wedding here and it was out of this world. The setting was perfect and it was a beautiful day in May with the sun shining down upon our shoulders. The organisers were very helpful and the food served excellent. Highly recommended for those looking for a traditional English experience.

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.

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.

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.
