These unique At the Manor events and initiatives take place in the City of Windsor’s historic manor in Old Walkerville and are co-produced by the City’s Culture & Events team and the manor’s exclusive caterer. Thyme To-Go’s Head Chef Julie Myers designs special menus that draw inspiration from Willistead’s history and from her travels around the world, created with fresh and local ingredients wherever possible. 

Willistead Manor’s main courtyard is currently undergoing a full restoration. The work includes tearing up the temporary concrete courtyard that was poured during 2018 restoration work, and removing the accessible ramp contained within the courtyard. During this important restoration project, the main courtyard and main entrance to Willistead Manor are closed and inaccessible. During this time, access for events is through the Paul Martin Gardens by way of the pathways in Willistead Park. The Paul Martin Gardens include an accessible ramp.
