Parliament Hill

South Central Ontario travelers who schedule a visit to the Capital City of Ottawa, have the opportunity to see a wonderful variety of museums, attractions and historical sites. One must-see historical site is Parliament Hill, located in downtown Ottawa along the Ottawa River. This area of Crown Land was originally home to a military base named Barrack Hill, during the 18th and 19th centuries.

By 1859, construction began on the Gothic Revival style parliament buildings, with Prince Albert Edward, Prince of Wales laying the cornerstone for the Centre Block, in September 1860. After construction halted for a few years, the Parliament was finally completed in 1876. After the Centre Block was destroyed by a fire, in 1916, Governor General Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught re-laid the cornerstone to start its rebuilding. It took eleven years to complete the construction of the new tower. Numerous significant events have occurred at The Hill, including the 1939 visit by King George VI, the reigning Canadian sovereign, accompanied by Queen Elizabeth.

Tour this 952,391 square feet of land to see the quadrangle of buildings, all National Historic Sites of Canada, the numerous statues, the memorials and the Summer Gazebo of Carpenter Gothic style. The statue of Queen Victoria, the country's first monarch, was dedicated in 1901 by her grandson Prince George, Duke of Cornwall and York. Monuments include the Victoria Tower Bell and the Centennial Flame. During the summer, visit The Hill for Mosaika, the spectacular thirty-minute free light and music show. While in the area, be sure to include a visit to the Rideau Canal, located to the east of The Hill. Enjoy your time in Central Ontario as a guest of Best Western hotels, where comfortable accommodations await.
