Best Indian food in London, you may have to wait but the food is superb. If you are not familiar with this type of food, go with mild dishes first. There are many delicious ones to try. It is just around the corner on Dundas St.

Authentic Greek food served by pleasant and welcoming staff. The Fish, Grilled Calamari and the Village salad with a side of Taziki is my favourite.

Everyone's favorite pasta place in a basement with weird decor and loads of conversation pieces. I bet you won't be able to finish the entire bowl of pasta they serve. Delicious!

Good place for handmade burgers and maybe you'd like to sit on the patio. Just off Richmond away from the hustle, cut through Victoria Park to get here and have a beer with your meal.

Fantastic food with flair. Check the hours before you go, they can close early some nights, and they do not take reservations, near the market and Budweiser Gardens. The food is memorable.

Walk Abouts
London has a wealth of beautiful old homes. Nestled among mature trees, the homes of Woodfield are truly one of a kind.
Walk north on Colborne down to Dufferin. Head East to William St. Turn left, (north) and then turn left onto Princess Ave heading West. This block of Princess between William and Prospect is the true heart of Woodfield and where our summer festival takes place. It has a fine collection of homes including some down Prospect that are made of wood. These beauties survived a great fire in London when almost all of the wooden structures were lost.If you continue down Princess and cross Colborne, turn north up to Central Ave and go West again. Follow Central to the top of Victoria Park. This was an Army Base before it was converted into a city park. Surrounding the park are many lovely homes as well. To return back, head south down through the park back to Dufferin and head east back to Colborne.

A wrought iron bowstring arch through truss bridge, crossing Thames River. It was built in 1875 and still functioning. At 216 ft, it is the longest working span of that kind in North America. Recently rebuilt and reinstalled. Cross the river in style. Walk west down Central Ave all the way to the dead end and follow the steps down to the North end of Harris Park. Ounce you cross, on the far side of the river you can go along the high road past Labatt Park , one of Canada's oldest baseball diamonds, to the next bridge and walk back along Dundas St. This is where the Jette d'Eau( the large fountain) is located, at the Forks of the Thames. The courthouse and old Jail is on this side of the river as well as The Art gallery.

Take a self guided tour and explore the life of the Harris family. They offer teas and socials on the lawn during strawberry season. I really enjoyed this more than I thought I would, as well as my grand daughters. They paid such attention to the details of a past life. A lovely museum. The gardens are well maintained in the summer, the peonies are a sight to see.
