Historic Port Hope is the perfect setting for the Capitol Theatre — our own piece of Canadian history — and the perfect place to explore during an extended visit.

In the words of Visit Port Hope, the town “is a heritage community situated on the north shore of Lake Ontario in Northumberland County and offers both an urban and rural paradise with the perfect combination of heritage charm, modern vibrancy and cultural allure. The Ganaraska River runs through the heart of town past historic buildings and there are miles of waterfront trails, a sandy beach, heritage conservation district downtown, quaint villages and scenic country driving routes. The friendly people of Port Hope welcome you to come for the day or stay the night, and experience the splendid amenities and events that make Port Hope your perfect place of choice to visit!”
