We have many times enjoyed the wonderful afternoon teas put on by Bovaird house. The Period décor and costumes worn all add to the experience. The baked goods are from very old recipies and the house itself is a treasure of history.

A little piece of history in Brampton. Volunteers dress in period clothing and conduct tours of the house. They have event during the year; for example, Christmas craft sale, Mother Day tea, Dessert by Lamplight. I recently enjoyed the Dessert by Lamplight event with friends.

No trip to Brampton should be without an excursion to Bovaird House. Recreation of a 19th-century farm, authentic.

Old fashioned tea room, small menu, but unique atmosphere. Good parking. Turn back time there is no heat in the house so don't go on a cold day. They have special days like Mother's Day brunch.
