Where the Canadian governor lives. There is English and French tour guide and it takes 45 mins. The tend room, ball room, etc. It opens only few rooms, it is worth for people who loves history.

We're Canadians, we know what the Governor-General does, and we know quite a lot about the current G-G and his predecessors. This was still interesting. Security was tight, and the bag search was very thorough. Our excellent tour guide went at a good pace. You...More

We drove around the Sussex Drive. A very impressive drive with the Governors, Ministers (PM), Embassies etc etc. But the Governor's House was the best and had the view as the British Monarch residence, unquestionably.
Thank you for your review! We are happy that you enjoyed your stroll around Rideau Hall.

Thank you for taking a minute out of your time to write a review! You are right: Rideau Hall is a small oasis just outside the downtown core of Ottawa. We are glad that you also got to see the Ceremonial Guards and that you...More
A relaxing, park-like setting near the city centre. Rideau Hall offers plenty of Canadian history, including plaques identifying trees planted by famous people from around the world. A kilted and bearskin-hatted bagpiper comes along once an hour. A tour of the house offers more Canadian...More

Went this summer as a visitor and it was nice but without access to a lot of places it is like something is missing. I am not saying is not a nice and worthy visit.More
Thank you for your comment regarding your visit to Rideau Hall! Indeed, the section of the residence that is accessible to the public represents approximately one third of the total space but this is very much due to the nature of the site. If you...More
