Willistead Manor Annual Holiday Tours
The City of Windsor invites you to get into the holiday spirit and treat yourself to something unforgettable at Willistead Manor. Experience breathtaking beauty as you tour one of Windsor’s most elegant mansions all decked out in its holiday finest. From the Great Hall on the main floor, to the private dressing chamber on the second, each room boasts a unique colour theme and aesthetic, courtesy of the Friends of Willistead and their dedicated team of volunteers.
As part of the holiday tours, guests will also have access to the permanent Coach House Historical Exhibition that opened last year to share and celebrate the history of Edward and Mary Walker, Hiram Walker, the Walker family businesses and community impacts, the formation of Walkerville, the construction and uses of Willistead Manor, and much more. The exhibition was researched, designed and installed by HCA Mindbox, and supported by The Charleigh Charitable Trust, the Walker descendants, Willistead Manor Inc., the Friends of Willistead, and the City of Windsor.

Support Vulnerable Populations: Again this year, Willistead Manor is proud to be one of CBC Windsor’s “Sounds of the Season” campaign sites. This is an annual effort by the CBC to raise food and funds for food banks across Canada. While this is a Canada-wide effort, all donations raised locally go to support the Windsor-Essex Food Bank Association – an organization representing area food banks. Guests of Willistead Manor’s 2023 Holiday Tours are encouraged to bring a food item to donate onsite at the Coach House, to help make a difference in our community.
