Travellers in the mood for a brief history lesson while touring the Canadian capital of Ottawa may want to visit Mackenzie King Estate and Tearoom, where they can take in the fall colours in a serene and tranquil environment. This historical park was once the home of Canada's 10th prime minister, William Lyon Mackenzie King, and served as his inspiration to lead for most of this life.
While wandering through the illustrious grounds, people who travel to Ontario for the scenery will not be disappointed with what they find at the Mackenzie King Estate. There are not only lovely gardens, but fascinating and picturesque ruins, cottages that date back to the 1940s and acres of grounds to explore on foot as well.
Luckily for those staying at Ottawa accommodations in the heart of the city, this park is only a short drive away from Parliament hill. After walking through the park, visitors should stop at the tearoom and have a quick lunch and cup of English breakfast.
