The Victoria Garden

Victoria Bick takes us on a tour of the restored kitchen garden at Dundurn Castle in Hamilton, Ontario

Discovering the Charms of Stratford

There’s a lot more to Stratford, Ontario, than the Stratford Festival. From its rich architecture and thriving food scene to the elegant gardens at City Hall, this little town on the Avon River has all the qualities we at Harrowsmith have come to love.

Stratford Summer Music Festival

For a break from all the food, architecture, theatre and gorgeous gardens, a visit to the Stratford Summer Music Festival may be just what the doctor ordered.

A Victorian Time Machine

While many a small Canadian town will claim to be a Victorian village, Stratford is without a doubt the real deal: a place where vintage architecture has been lovingly preserved.

Thrill of the Hunt

From chic boutiques to sprawling outdoor markets, the world is your oyster when it comes to shopping for antiques.

Don’t Forget the Folklore

While you’re out discovering Stratford and the surrounding region, keep your ears and eyes open for some fascinating local folklore.
