Released on May 17, 2019Expanded hours, new guided tours and exciting programs - Government House is the place to be this summer.
There are also a variety of special garden tours happening throughout the summer, including the ever-popular “Not Who, but Watt” tour on June 29, July 27 and August 25, the “Secrets of Government House” tour on August 17 and many more.
Beyond the tours, Government House’s Edwardian Gardens are the perfect place to relax in the summer. Bring a book and relax under a beautiful elm tree. Invite some friends to go for a walk – ensure that furry friends stay on a leash! Or, enjoy a picnic on the manicured lawns.
Starting June 15, Government House’s Vice Regal Coffee Bar will be offering a build-your-own “Prairie Picnic Basket” for guests to pick up and enjoy with no need to order ahead. Inside, step back in time with the Amédée Forget Museum. Hourly guided tours will be led by colourful characters from Government House’s past. Get hands-on with artifacts through the Junior Conservator Pop-Up Programming, and children aged four through 10 can learn through play with the monthly Government (Club) House program.
