Discover why this beautiful castle overlooking the bay is one of Hamilton’s most iconic and beloved historic attractions. Step back in time at the former home of one of Canada's first premiers, Sir Allan MacNab, now a National Historic Site. Once the site of a fortified military encampment, Dundurn Castle has since evolved to tell the story of the family who lived above stairs and the servants who lived and worked below. Explore the historic home’s lovingly restored rooms and corridors as part of a guided tour with a costumed interpreter. Find immersive programming and special events year-round – including famous Christmas tours and historic kitchen cooking workshops. Roam the property's scenic landscape, see the 2-acre historic kitchen garden, and visit The Castle Shop for Canadian handmade souvenirs, and special gifts.
