Experience a guided tour of this 40-room Italianate-style villa built in the 1830’s on Burlington Heights, the former site of a fortified military encampment established by the British in 1813.

Led by costumed staff, visitors will explore over 40 rooms and discover the history of the MacNab family and the servants who lived and worked below stairs to support their affluent lifestyle.

In the 19th century servants were employed in large homes like Dundurn to do a variety of tasks such as washing, dusting, polishing and cooking. Assisted by Dundurn’s Cook Demonstrators, guests will work together to make a traditional recipe in the castle's historic kitchen. 

A take home recipe book will be provided for you to replicate the recipes at home!

Nuts are not used in any of the recipes; however Dundurn cannot guarantee a nut free environment.
