Destination Icon



Nestled in Middlesex County, halfway between Toronto and Detroit, lies the city of London, Ontario. It is in the traditional territory of the Anishinaabeg, Haudenosaunee, Attawandaron (Neutral), and Wendat peoples. Since it was founded in 1826, London has been a prominent city in Southwestern Ontario. Prior to European settlement in the 18th century, Neutral and Ojibwa villages populated the area for at least 10,000 years. Today, London carries clear inspiration from its British namesake, notably the Thames River. There are numerous greenways and parks along the Thames and throughout the city, including the popular Springbank and Victoria parks. The city boasts a wide range of cultural attractions, including popular musicians and shows, many of which take place at the Budweiser Gardens Theatre. There are also several festivals in the summer months, and many attractions for history buffs (including Fanshawe Pioneer Village, Banting House, and Eldon House).
