Heritage shaped by agriculture, science, business, and learning

Selected by Lieutenant-Governor John Graves Simcoe as the location for the new provincial capital, London would eventually settle for being the urban hub of Southwestern Ontario. To walk the streets of London is to witness a union of new and old. London offers several unique historic experiences such as Banting House, the birthplace of insulin, and the Secrets of Radar Museum. Families can spend hours enjoying hands-on fun at the London Regional Children's Museum, or visiting days gone by at Fanshawe Pioneer Village.
