The historic house is closed for restoration work

The gardens remain open. 

As a historic carriage drive opens before you, take a picture of Bellevue House and its authentic 1840s green and white exterior. Hear the echoes of family footsteps in rooms and halls where Sir John A. Macdonald and his wife enjoyed a tranquil year. Tour a working Victorian kitchen garden and explore the grounds with a maid or gentleman in period costume.

Make sure to check back often for activities in 2021.
