Victoria Hall

55 King St. W, K9A 2M2, 905-372-2210

The most prominent building in town is the town hall, Victoria Hall, a National Historic Site of Canada that overlooks the shore of Lake Ontario. It comes with its own impressive story, built in 1860 by notable Toronto architect Kivas Tully and named in honour of Queen Victoria. Her son, the Prince of Wales, made an official visit for the hall opening and the town marked the occasion with a grand ball. The Palladian-style building, with Grecian columns and stone-cut symbols of the British Isles, was faithfully restored and houses a concert hall, gallery, town offices and courtroom fashioned after the Old Bailey in London. Guided tours are available year-round.
