Port Hope Tourism

Take a scenic drive only one hour east of Toronto to one of Ontario’s oldest and prettiest communities. Historic Port Hope is located on the north shore of Lake Ontario. The majestic Ganaraska River runs through the heart of town past century old buildings.

Well appointed bed and breakfasts, inns and a world class spa are within walking distance of the heritage district and Ontario’s best preserved 19th century main street. Country retreats are also available with scenic views and hiking opportunities. Excellent restaurants, boutiques and quality antiques make Port Hope a distinctive destination.

Take in a professional performance at the 1930 Capitol Theatre, one of Canada’s last remaining atmospheric theatres. It gives patrons the illusion of being seated outdoors in a medieval castle garden with a blue star studded sky. Professional plays, concerts, dance, comedy and films entertain throughout the year and overnight packages are available by calling the box office.

There are miles of waterfront trails, a sandy beach, charming picnic spots and driving and cycling tours into quaint countryside villages. Stop along the way and visit markets and roadside stands. Dozens of festivals and events take place year round including the annual river race on the Ganaraska, artists and artisans tours, the historic house tour, All Canadian Jazz Festival, Fall Fair and Olde Tyme Christmas events just to name a few.

The Municipality of Port Hope is in the County of Northumberland and encompasses Port Hope, Port Britain, Wesleyville, Welcome, Canton, Osaca, Perrytown, Campbellcroft, Garden Hill and Elizabethville.
