Visit Dundurn Castle, the magnificent home of Sir Allan Napier MacNab, one of Canada's first premiers. Discover mid-19th-century Hamilton on your tour of more than 40 rooms on three floors. Experience life in a grand country home for the MacNab family and the servants working below stairs.
Dundurn Castle is located on a height of land known as Burlington Heights. During the War of 1812, the British Army established a military post at the site. Sir Allan MacNab later incorporated elements of the post into the construction of Dundurn Castle during the 1830's.
Leave time to browse in the The Castle Shop and Gallery at Dundurn, featuring Canadian handmade crafts, souvenirs and special gifts. Enjoy a visit to the Hamilton Military Museum and the restored Kitchen Garden, all located in Dundurn Park.
