Old Town Niagara-on-the-Lake, located in our town’s historic Heritage District, has a rich history all its own. Visit the Niagara Apothecary, a nineteenth-century apothecary restored to its former glory and open for visitors to learn about how historical pharmacists practiced. Take an unforgettable photo in front of the Memorial Clock Tower, a memorial honouring Canada’s fallen soldiers in WWI.

Old Town is also home to a wide range of locally owned and operated specialty shops, so don’t forget to take a stroll down Queen Street for one-of-a-kind goods you won’t find anywhere else!
