Welcome to Guelph!

At the junction of the Speed and Ermosa River, one hour west of Toronto, is the picturesque city of Guelph. The most distinctive aspect of Guelph's downtown cityscape is the century-old limestone buildings. Considered one of the first planned cities in Canada, Guelph's original area resembles that of a European urban area complete with wide main streets and narrow side streets, streaming from a main focal point. Guelph was named in honour of a British Royal Family sharing the same name, earning it the nickname "The Royal City". The McCrae House museum remembers the community—s famous son John McCrae, world-renowned doctor, soldier and author of the poem —In Flanders Field—. Other places of note include the University of Guelph for its outstanding agriculture program and the River Run Centre, an excellent performing arts venue. Thanks to the pristine water sources in the area, a few successful microbreweries are also in the local, some offering tours.
