Take a trip back in time to Fulford Place and enjoy afternoon tea there. Great little tour, very interesting and entertaining. This is the birth place of "Pink Pills for Pale People"! This is a beautiful home, the view from the river is even more stunning.

Our friends (and kids) wanted to see this so we went with them! What a quaint surprise! We were attending a wedding in the area, or never would have come to Brockville. We really enjoyed the whole town! It's a gem! and this Tour is a very inexpensive and interesting way to spend an hour. I recommend it!

The other reviews on this home sum it up in terms of the splendor of the house. It is truly visually amazing and many important political figures and even royalty visited this home up until the 1960's when the family still owned it, which is a testament to its beauty and historical significance during its heyday and presently. I'd like... More

Ran into one of the tour guides while we were walking through the waterfront in Brockville and she suggested we come for a visit, and it was well worth it. Beautiful restored home of Senator George Fulford, located on the banks of the St. Lawrence river. Stunning home, fascinating history and beautiful restoration. The guided tour is absolutely worth the... More

We had lunch on the front terrace and then went on the tour. The house and story are so interesting. Our tour guide was just great. My husband grew up in Brockville and he enjoyed so much sharing stories with her.

We thoroughly enjoyed touring the historic home. It was built between 1899 and 1901 for a wealthy businessman, George Fulford. The home is quite grand and was finished with the finest wood and other materials of the time. It is about 20,000 square feet. We enjoyed hearing the docents describe Mr. Fulford and his family who owned the property until... More

We toured the home and thoroughly enjoyed viewing the beautiful artifacts and furnishings. We couldn't resist the delectable aromas as we entered and had a lovely lunch served on the patio overlooking the St. Lawrence River.

Beautiful home. Grew up on the legend of the Fulfords and have gone on tour several times. Amazing Brockville has so much to give to history.

What I really liked about this tour was that you could actually visualize the family living there - they have so much of the original furnishings. The tour guide was informative and friendly. The tea room served a delicious lunch (the chef produces simple but tasty fare from a very small kitchen). The menu changes periodically. We had the quiche... More
