We spoke with some of the artists that were there and even bought a painting and a few little items to take home with us…Beautiful place to hold a wedding or event” ★★★★★  Google Reviews, Mike T.

“The Alton Mills Arts Centre is one of our favourite places around southern Ontario. You can find unique paintings, sketching prints, clothing, and other art treasures done by amazing local artists. Plus it affords a great location to walk the dogs along a part of the Bruce Trail, and it provides walking access to the nearby Millcroft Inn & Spa. Truly a gem work visiting time and time again” ★★★★★  Google Reviews , Jason D.


“Wow. If you are into history or art or both. This is a great place for you. A historical building that once used the power of the creek running along the side of the building to produce both linen and rubber products at different times. Now offers studio space and galleries for numerous talented artist's.  Be sure to check out the turbine room to see how this mill was once powered”. ★★★★★  Google Reviews , Darrel M.

Weddings & Events


Our Dream Wedding! We had both our wedding ceremony and reception at Alton Mill and I cannot recommend this venue enough. It had a little bit of everything; gorgeous, rustic stone walls, beautiful greenery, a waterfall with a courtyard beside it, etc. I worked closely with Samantha from Alton Mill and she did a fantastic job. I had a million questions leading up to the event and she was happy to answer all of them and really helped reduce any stress for the big day. On the wedding day everything went so smoothly and the venue looked so beautiful. Thank you to Samantha and everyone at Alton Mill for making our day so special!” ★★★★★  WeddingWire , Megan G.

“Despite a -10C January day, they still managed to take advantage of the idyllic outdoor setting: the ceremony took place in an enclosed stone courtyard and guests glided about to acoustic guitar tunes on the frozen pond before dinner.” - Inside a Serious Canadian Affair, with Pond Hockey & Beaver Tails , Toronto Life Real Weddings 2017.
