Visit Rideau Hall

Come home to Rideau Hall.

Where every Governor General has lived and worked since Canada's birth in 1867. Where exceptional Canadians are honoured. Where world leaders and visitors from around the globe are welcome. Where people from across Canada are at home.

Rideau Hall awaits you. History and tradition come alive. Yesterday meets today.

Throughout the year, tours of Rideau Hall give you a chance to walk through Canada's history. Guided tours are free and last 45 minutes, and the grounds are open from 8 a.m. to one hour prior to sunset. If you have a group of ten people or more, we ask that you make a reservation 48 hours in advance by calling (613) 991-4422 or 1-866-842-4422. And we offer specialized tours.
