Queen Street Review

You can get a glimpse of the town's rich architectural history walking along this single street, with Lake Ontario to your north, and it is the core of NOTL's commercial portion. At the corner of Queen and King Streets is Niagara Apothecary. This high-style, mid-Victorian building was an apothecary from 1866 to 1964. The Court House is situated across the street. It became the Town Hall in 1862. Presently, it houses a small 327-seat theatre during Shaw Festival. At No. 209 is the handsome Charles Inn, formerly known as Richardson-Kiely House, built in 1832 for Charles Richardson, who was a barrister and member of Parliament. The ten or so blocks of shopping includes an olive tasting room, upscale restaurants and cafes, designer-label boutiques, old-fashioned ice-cream parlors, and a spa. You could easily spend an entire day in this area.
