Located in Perth Country in Southwestern Ontario, Canada, Stratford is a small yet bustling city. Established in the 1830s, Stratford is located on the banks of the Avon river and is one of the prettiest historic cities in Ontario.
Stratford is a popular tourist destination because of the many sight-seeing opportunities and exciting visitor activities and events. From beautiful heritage homes to the idyllic parks along the Avon River (complete with its resident swans), to the charming Shakespearean Gardens, there are plenty of natural attractions and fun things to do that keep visitors coming back year after year.
Home to the famous Stratford Festival, which has been active for more than 60 years, Stratford is rich in world-class theatre - with both classic Shakespearean plays and modern, contemporary productions. Stratford is also well-known for its vibrant art scene and features many top-notch restaurants and specialty shops that both locals and visitors have come to know and love.
Stratford also has many interesting tourism exhibits that further help visitors explore and understand the city. The popular Stratford Perth museum, one of the earliest ongoing collections founded in Ontario, seeks to document the history of the region but also has fun events and exhibits suitable for the whole family to enjoy. The Stratford festival often puts on backstage tours of its theatres, which showcase the props and costumes of its plays. Many guests also enjoy the town’s beautiful garden tours.
