Ontario's Shakespeare Country
Welcome to Shakespeare Country!
Comprised of prominent municipalities such as Stratford, London, Woodstock, Goderich and St. Thomas, this region of Ontario is truly unique, combining idyllic country-style living with metropolitan flair. The region has a definite British feel—from the city of London, situated on a river called Thames and offering tours atop double-decker buses, to the town of Stratford, firmly planted on the shores of the Avon River and home to the Stratford Festival, a prominent Shakespearean festival held each year. The area is teeming with both obvious and subtle tributes to one of Canada's founding nations. Shakespeare Country has an expansive and pristine shoreline that is ideal for exploring, especially at Pinery Provincial Park, which is home to one of the few remaining Oak Savanna forests in North America. The region boasts a number of significant attractions, such as the Banting House National Historic Site in London, which pays tribute to the Canadian doctor who discovered insulin, and the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame in St. Marys, which celebrates Canada's proud baseball history.
