    Five stars. Staffs are very polite, patient, and welcoming. They spent a lot of time telling you everything about this village and answering all questions you have. You won't waste your time there!

    This is a great place for a relaxing time. Wander through and talk to the "pioneers". It is an outdoor museum. Well run on a small budget. Great food in the cafe. Well kept facilities. Interesting exhibits

    I love this place because of the history and information they provide about how a small town worked.

    We have always loved the Pioneer Village and have taken all of our children, including our dog, here for various events. I've never had a bad experience. My husband and I are much looking forward to the upcoming Haunted Village tour.

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.
