As Mayor of the Town of Cobourg and a proud resident for more than three decades, it is my distinct pleasure to welcome you to our town. You’ve come for an experience and we can provide you with so many!
Park the car and take a walk Downtown. Step into quaint shops and be greeted with warm hellos. Take in the scents of our town-grown flower baskets and be sure to keep a close watch for monarch butterflies.
Step back in time and as you tour your way through our four designated heritage districts. Stand in awe of the charismatic and unique heritage homes. Each have a story to tell, some older than Canada, and may have appeared in a movie or two.
Ask for a free tour of Victoria Hall, a building so exquisite in architectural design that Edward, the young Prince of Wales, the future King Edward VII, came to Cobourg during his Canadian tour in 1860 and on September 6 officially opened Victoria Hall which was named for his mother Queen Victoria.
