  • Great place. We had a very nice and educational tour there. Girl who led the tour was amazing, very knowledgeable and helpful. Would be very nice if the museum will have extended hours and work Sundays. Highly recommend.
  • Great place to go! and to learn about history and a lot more ! Thank you sir frederick banting for information on diabetes and for coming up with insulin! 😊 oh and my 7 year old loved it. Teached her about sugar and not good for you so now she has been drinking water more than ever before lol.πŸ˜‰ thanks for education, πŸ˜†
  • Lots of interesting facts to learn as you walk through this fully air conditioned old house. The tour guide was generally on point but sometimes not needed or wanted. Large parking lot located behind the house.
  • Historical. Amazing. Worth the time spent, for visitors to London or residents. Public art and a great reflection garden outside. Take the time.
  • Very interesting story. Worth going with guide.

Where to stay in London

To make the most of sightseeing in London, it's best to stay in the center, as close as possible to the confluence of the city's two rivers. You'll be just a stone's throw from the city's best parks, as well as good entertainment. If you're just passing through and looking for budget accommodations while in transit, look east along Dundas Street--as you approach the airport, you'll find a host of affordable roadside motels. For a more suburban feel--and proximity to the city's biggest mall--head south to White Oaks, where you'll find a cluster of accommodations.
