Entering the former residence of two of Canada’s most important Prime Ministers is like stepping into the inner sanctum of our country’s political history. For over fifty years this Second Empire mansion in downtown Ottawa was at the heart of Canadian political life, serving as the residence of both Sir Wilfrid Laurier and the Rt. Hon. William Lyon Mackenzie King. Here they entertained dignitaries and politicians while often conducting the business of state.

This year Laurier House is launching a new program called “Sweet Picnic Tea on the Veranda”. This includes self-serve tea, a picnic basket of treats (Cookies, Madeleine, Shortbread) and admission to the site. The “Sweet Picnic Tea on the Veranda” will be offered on Saturdays July 7 (Historic Places Day,) 14, 28 and Saturdays August 4, 11, 18 from 1:30 PM to 4 PM. The price is $16 per person and a reservation is required by noon the Wednesday before the “Sweet Picnic Tea on the Veranda” you would like to attend . For more details, contact Laurier House by email or phone.

Admission is free for youth 17 and under all season!
