Reviewed 30 November 2013 via mobile

This area is an up and coming area. It has a few spots withe the visit and a following that is quite strong.
I suggest going to talula's, best hot coco in town and there are different types.
There's a few art spots like Windsor printmakers forum, but the best time to get it all in is during the walkerville walks.

There are many choices of where to dine and dance in Olde Walkerville. The gourmet emporium, Vitos and the Twisted Apron are a few places to try out.

Olde Walkerville is meant for leisurely walking. After strolling along Wyandotte, the main drag, and checking out the little shops, pick a few side streets at random to wander up and down.You will pass beautiful old mansions, historic row houses, and slightly more modest homes, nearly all beautifully maintained or restored.

Going directly south on Devonshire will take you past some of the more grandiose and beautiful homes and directly to St. Mary's Church, which looks as if it had been airlifted perhaps from a village in North Yorkshire. In fact the architects did model it after a traditional village church in England. Just beyond the church is Willestead Park and Manor House, a relaxing area for a picnic or just to relax a bit.

Olde Walkerville is home to Hiram Walker Distillery, after which it is named and for which it was once the company town. The distillery buildings are a nice example of Victorian industrial architecture, primarily still in use for their intended purposes. Some days the lovely warm aroma of roasted malt hangs over the neighbourhood. One of the old liquor warehouses, however, is now home to Walkerville Brewery. Tours are available at both the brewery and the distillery.

After exploring the neighbourhood, you will find a rich variety of restaurants, pubs, and taverns to replenish your energy and refresh your thirst.

I love everything old Walkerville. The committee has done its' research to ensure the old town feeling. Love the shops, the restaurants, basically everything about it...I love eclectic shops. I think this will become our "Soho".

Loved seeing all the old beautiful houses. They'll email you a map, not sure if they have them at the visitor center.
