    It was a great experience visiting there in the old 17th century village. If you really get to know about the living style 200 years earlier you must visit there once, believe me, you will get fascinated like me. I highly recommend this place to the new generation people.

    Lovely park paying tribute to local European pioneers. It is fading with a lack of public interest, unfortunately, and needs a reboot as an event centre and wouldn't it be nice if there were a craft brewery featuring retired Labatt recipes on site? An early Labatt brewery building is part of the collection of structures open to the public. Paul Peel house and London Free Press building are also highlights. Great spot for photography.

    Fanshawe Pioneer Village recreates a rural Ontario village over a 100-year time span, including buildings and their furnishings or equipment. To accomplish this the buildings are co-located by period, and the map/brochure you are given suggests an order which will take you from the oldest to most recent. Many buildings have docents dressed in period attire who tell you about the buildings and answer questions. Everything is in restored condition, and you are welcome to explore the buildings and grounds all you want. They make it easy for you to imagine what life would have been like in those days. It was very interesting to see the changes between the periods and learn the reasons for them. Highly recommendable for school groups. There is so much to see and learn here that we spent an entire day. Food is available in the village, so you don't have to worry about leaving in order to get lunch. To find it you must first find Fanshawe Conservation Area northeast of London, Ontario (at 1424 Clarke Road), the follow the orange-colored directional signs.

    i loved my time here. it took us about 2 hours to go through the whole village. we saw them make pioneer bread and we also got to feed the chickens! everything is well maintained and thoroughly explained via the awesome staff or small text. if you are a history fan this is definitely a place to visit!

    We really enjoyed this trip with the grandchildren. It was both educational and fun. They had various games to play, and all the staff were very happy and kind. The young lady at the toll booth was exceptional, bubbly and kind. Overall, we had a great experience and we hope to go back! 5 stars!
