Discover this grand Italianate-style villa built in the 1830s on Burlington Heights; the former site of a fortified military encampment... established by the British in 1813. Once home to Sir Allan Napier MacNab, railway magnate, lawyer and Premier of the United Canadas (1854-1856) and his family, today Dundurn Castle tells the story of the family who lived above stairs and the servants who lived and worked below stairs to support their affluent lifestyle. Experience unique and engaging cooking and gardening workshops or custom design your own for groups of 15 or more.
