What's not included

Access to special events
  • Explore Hamilton's picturesque botanical gardens, which were given the royal seal of approval by King George V
  • Wander around endless tranquil spaces, including a rock garden, an arboretum, and a sublime scented garden
  • Take your pick of the National Historic Site's nature trails, and get lost in Canada's blooming natural wonder

Set across 1,100 hectares of nature reserve, Ontario's lush Royal Botanical Gardens are an outdoor enthusiast's dream. This horticultural haven is nestled within the Niagara Escarpment World Biosphere Reserve, an hour's drive from the falls and 40 mins from Toronto.

Meander through five formal gardens – including a whispering arboretum and exotic Mediterranean garden – and hike 27km of colourful, serene nature trails. Take photos, leave footprints, and revel in Canada's ecological paradise.

Insider tip

If all that outdoor adventuring has left you a little weary, stop for a drink and a bite at the rock garden's chilled café-restaurant. There are also hand-made souvenirs, tasty local produce and nuggets of garden inspiration available at the gift shop. Why not take home something for your garden as a permanent reminder of your royal visit?
