Don’t miss the fun due to construction delays!

Come to Stratford early and stay late! Construction delays may be significant in summer 2019 so be sure not to miss out on any fun!

Hwy 7: Adding a round-about at Line 26 between Stratford and St. Marys/London/401 W

Exits from this roundabout to Line 26 are now closed. This first phase of construction should not significantly affect through traffic on Hwy 7; however, from July 2nd until October, the roundabout will be closed to all traffic. Detours will be signposted, and drivers should allow extra time to follow them.

Hwy 6 to Embro/401: Replacement of large culvert Aug-Nov

Expect delays but road will not be closed. Hwy 7 detour is suggested as above, if there is an overlap.

Hwy 8 between Stratford and Shakespeare: In progress

Beginning in early June, stretches of this road between the west end of Shakespeare and the east end of Stratford will be reduced on weekdays to a single lane, with flag people controlling traffic in both directions. Delays may be lengthy, so please allow additional time for your trip. (Both lanes are expected to be open on evenings and weekends.)

Scottish Contrasts, from Castle life to Haggis

Posted under FALL ROAD TRIPS FROM STRATFORD on Oct 10, 2019

Are you ready for some great surprises under 30 minutes from Stratford? Extend your stay….Extend your play!

We don’t see a lot of castles in southwestern Ontario so you need to check out the house that James Livingston, "The Flax and Linseed Oil King of Canada,” built outside of Baden. Castle Kilbride is a fascinating 1877 Victorian gem marking 25 years as a museum.

One of the coolest spots we’ve been to lately is the Fryfogel Tavern & Arboretum. Built in 1844-45, it is the last remaining of the many Canada Company taverns built along the Huron Tract. The arboretum is a garden of native plants and trees is a collection of what would have occupied the site in 1844.

You’ll need a top up after all that exploring. Scran & Dram Scottish Public House will fill that need with good Scottish eats. How about a Brie Burger, haggis with neeps and tatties, Scotch eggs, and craft beer! Scran & Dram is also known for rare drinks, fine single malts and live music.

Hit the road with your crew and make this road trip yours!
