Nestled at the convergence of the Grand River— a Canadian Heritage River — and the Speed River, Cambridge has four distinct centres: Galt, Hespeler, Preston and Blair. Well-known for its historic limestone buildings dating back to the mid 1800’s, the city has a European ‘Dickens-like’ flair. With 58 km of walking trails — many along its waterfront — and spectacular views from atop 400-million-year-old limestone cliffs, you can catch a glimpse of the distinct Mennonite settlements that surround the area.
Cambridge is quickly emerging as an artistic centre with the spectacular Hamilton Family Theatre, a state-of-the-art facility boasting world-class acoustics. After an exhilarating night at the theatre, a diverse selection of exceptional restaurants await your every culinary whim. Or, if you have a taste for luxury, enter the gates of one of Canada’s top 20 hotels, the magnificent Langdon Hall Country House Hotel & Spa, for some exceptional pampering.
Cambridge has an abundance of attractions to excite the whole family. Take a tour of the awe-inspiring Toyota Motor Manufacturing plant or a slow drive through the game reserve of the African Lion Safari where wild animals come to take a look at you. If you’re hoping for something a little more mellow, relax amongst thousands of free-flying butterflies in the tropical paradise of the Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory.
Historic Cambridge has it all!
