On your way to downtown Uxbridge, make a stop at the Buckingham Gallery, a private gallery of Canadian artwork, including Canada’s Group of Seven and their contemporaries. Be sure to check their website for special shows happening throughout the year. When you arrive in town, the Tin Cup Caffe will serve you a perfect latte, homemade soup and famous carrot cake, and while you enjoy your treats you can drool over the beautiful artwork covering the walls. Look out the window and you will see your next stop –Preston Gallery. The gallery focuses on showcasing original Canadian art works in all mediums. Drop in and take a new artwork home with you.
Just a few steps away is one of Canada’s most beloved book stores: Blue Heron Books. In addition to the carefully curated book collection, you can find the Blue Heron Studio at the back of the store; a creative learning space for those interested in exploring the artistic expression. And perhaps most popular of all, Blue Heron hosts year-round literary events that bring world-renowned authors right to the heart of Uxbridge.
From Blue Heron, you are walking distance to the Uxbridge Music Hall, one of the great cultural hubs of Uxbridge. Take in music or theatre (or both), experiencing local talent and great acoustics in this beautiful historic building.
Tuck in at the Rolling View Highlands B & B for a spectacular experience where you will stay in an environment with a private view for 30 kilometres or more at the top of the stunning Oak Ridges Moraine. Cozy up to the wood stove and fireplace in the Vista Suite.
After breakfast, enjoy a wintery walk while you take a trip back in time in the charming downtown on a Historic Walking Tour . You’ll see where merchants, doctors, beekeepers, carriage makers, shoemakers, masons, and politicians lived. Take a break to Discover Uxbridge shop and dine, and soak up the architecture that holds the stories of years gone by.
