Explore the Core in Brantford

 

  • Book a rental with one of our local outfitters, Grand Experiences or Grand River Rafting and experience a relaxing and scenic paddle. When you book with a local outfitter, enjoy the convenience of parking and shuttle services as well as a safety talk and equipment, so all you need to worry about is having fun.
  • Paddling along the Grand River you will have the opportunity to admire the Carolinian landscape before exiting the river at Brant Park in Brantford where you will be shuttled back to your vehicle so you can continue exploring the community.
  • Drive over to Brantford’s Cordage Heritage District, a growing community of artisans and shops. Visit Mash Paddle Brewing Company to sample local craft beer in their tap room or on their outdoor patio.
  • Walk around the building to Bathtub Bakery, a local shop filled with unique, bakery-inspired bath and body treats that look good enough to eat. The shop is filled with cupcakes for your shower, whimsical bath bombs shaped like donuts or s’mores, deliciously-scented soy candles and much more.
  • Continue your walk through the Cordage Heritage District and discover the freshly roasted coffee beans, merchandise and brewing accessories at Seventh Coffee Company. If you are looking for that perfect cup of coffee to brew at home, this local roaster can help you find the perfect blend. For a special experience, book a tasting tour for you and your group.
  • Take a short drive downtown for dinner at Hudson Public, which is nestled beside Harmony Square and across from the Sanderson Centre for the Performing Arts. You can also check out nearby restaurants Nine North, The Chinese Sisters Restaurant or Sip ‘N Dine.
