Dundurn Castle

This post is quite a bit different from my traditional beauty posts, but yesterday Collin and I spent the afternoon at Dundurn Castle in Hamilton, Ontario (Canada). Dundurn Castle is one of Hamilton's most recognised landmarks - I had been to the castle before, but I was much younger and did not remember it. Dundurn Castle is located on a height of land known as Burlington Heights.  During the War of 1812, the British Army established a military post at the siteThe castle was home to Sir Allen McNab, and was completed in 1835. Since then, 42 out of 70 rooms have been restored to reflect the year 1855, and the Victorian lifestyle. 

Collin and I walked around the grounds and went on a 45minute tour inside the castle. Our tour passes also allowed us access into The Hamilton Military Museum, which had quite a few artifacts from the war. During the tour of the castle I wasn't allowed to use my flash, and since there is no electricity, I had to depend on the natural light for my pictures, as many rooms were dimly lit. It was very inexpensive (less than $20.00 for the two of us), and it was very interesting! I thought I would share some (or alot) of my pictures from the day! My apologies for the picture heavy post!

If you're ever in Hamilton, or live in Southern Ontario and are looking for something to do, I highly recommend that you check out Dundurn Castle!
