A lovely historic home with a wonderful view of Hamilton Harbour. Always a nice spot to visit at Christmas time.

I came here a while ago for a school trip and I totally want to go again. So interesting!
Spooky but cool

I loved Dundurn! It was very stately and well-maintained. The furnishings and decor are true to age, and the place is fascinating! I loved seeing the restoration on the top floor, and the basement scared the bejeezus out of me, but was super cool! I wish I could do a ghost tour here, it would probably be one of the top attractions in Hamilton!
The Dundurn Castle is a 40-room, Italianate-style villa built to completion in 1835, by architect Robert Charles Wetherell. It was once home to Sir Allan Napier MacNab, a railway magnate, lawyer, and former Premier of the United Canadas from 1854 to 1856.
Today, officially owned by the City of Hamilton since 1900, the Dundurn Castle tells the story of a family who lived an affluent lifestyle in the upstairs, while servants lived and worked below the stairs. This castle is now designated a National Historic Site of Canada.
