London, Ontario: Experience The Best Of The British Namesake

Oh no, don’t mistake it for the London of England. This is a smaller city in Ontario. It is known as the forest city and is surrounded by farmlands and woodlands. On my visit to this city, I came across many attractions and landmarks. When you visit Canada, you should not miss out on London since it has a lot to offer. Let’s take a look at the best things to do in this city.

  • Springbank Park

Want to spend some family time, visit Springbank Park that covers an area of 140 hectares. It spreads along the Thames River. I was thrilled to spend some time biking and hiking amidst this natural beauty. The park has to offer several activities like a zoo, lawn tennis, amusement park, picnic area, bowling lawns, and dancehall.

  • Storybook Gardens

Swoop in your family to Storybook Garden to spend some magical time. Like the name suggests, it is a themed outdoor park based on the storybook. It has been opened to the public in the year 1958. I took my kids on the amusement rides. Also, I absolutely loved how the garden is maintained. There is a stage for dancing your heart out.

  • Eldon House

Go back in history and visit the historical Eldon House of London. The first residence of the city had been established in 1834. The place has been converted to a museum that includes a mansion along with many gardens. The mansion completed its 175 anniversary and is also called Harris Park. I took for a self-guided tour to take a closer look at the life of Harris Family. The personal belongings and antique furnishing of the family are on display.

  • Fanshawe Pioneer Village

This is an open-air museum. It has been built on 1959 for making the community a part of the preservation of the tradition and history using the historical reenactment in London, Westminster, Delaware, North Dorchester, Lobo, and West Missouri. I found a collection of artifacts.
