Edwardian Era (aka Downton Abbey era) Experiences Tour
Underwear Fashions, Castles, General Store & Light High Tea
We have a very interesting day planned for you as we spend a relaxed Sunday in Southwestern Ontario, experiencing the Edwardian Era.
If you have heard of the show "Downton Abbey", then you know what we mean when we say Edwardian Era! Technically, the Edwardian Era is the period from 1901 to 1910 covering the reign of King Edward VII of Great Britain. However, the Edwardian Era is generally extended to about 10 years before and about 10 years after, thus covering the period from 1890 to 1920.
We will start off our day today at the Waterloo Region Museum in Kitchener where after visiting the galleries, we will sit it on a fun presentation titled "The Unmentionables, A Fun Look at Ladies Underwear from 1870 to 1920!"
After our visit to the museum, we will travel to the Wilmot Township in the town of Baden and get a wonderful guided tour of Castle Kilbride, built around 1880 and the former residence of James Livingston, a member of parliament.
And we will finish our day in the quaint village of New Dundee where we will have a light high tea, also sometimes called a low tea in a building that has been in continuous use from 1887!
We will be making a brief stop for lunch at a highway service area. You can purchase something from one of the fast food outlets or you are welcome to bring along your own packed lunch.
