Guelph's European Ambience

The roads in Guelph are laid out like a British town. Note the limestone buildings on the right.

This is a photo of Douglas Street leading from downtown Guelph (St George's Square) to St. George's Anglican Church. St. George's has a beautiful 36 bell carillon.

Guelph was founded on St. George's day, April 23rd 1827, the feast day of the patron saint of England. The town was named to honour the Royal family, and is nicknamed the "Royal" city.
