Welcome to Historic Woodfield
Woodfield is a Victorian neighbourhood located in the heart of London, Ontario. This historic community is bordered by Richmond, Dundas, Adelaide and the CPR tracks to the north. Woodfield’s roughly 1400 households fall mostly within two Heritage Districts (East and West Woodfield). Homes in Woodfield date from the 1840s, with most homes built between the late 1800s and early 1900s. Woodfield is one of the largest and finest examples of intact Victorian streetscapes in Canada. The extensive size of the two combined Heritage Districts in Woodfield encompass everything from enormous Queen Anne style mansions to tiny Ontario Cottages. The level of preservation is impressive to say the least. No ‘gentrified’ district, this well-preserved community includes homes of all sizes, and residents from all walks of life. Victoria Park is found within the boundaries of Woodfield, alive with festivals in the summer and sparkling with beautiful lights in the winter. Tall trees line her wide historic streets.

Woodfield first flourished in the 19th Century when the upper and middle classes built homes here. While parts suffered from the growing business district, much of its Victorian charm and beauty has remained unspoiled for you to enjoy.
