- Rideau Hall, which was built in 1838, has been the official residence of the Queen's representative to Canada since 1867. The grounds cover more than 32 hectares (79 acres) and feature a magnificent greenhouse and ornamental gardens. Visitors can take a self-guided tour or book one of the many guided tours offered from 10a to 4p during the summer months. There are a number of events hosted by the Governor General throughout the year. Hours vary depending on which part of the hall you would like to see, but the entire complex is open to visitors from 8a until an hour before sunset.
