Quaint Town of Port Hope...

Port Hope is not just another small town... it offers antique shopping, a broad variety of restaurants, and lots of shops to suit all. Port Hope is right of Lake Ontario, we have a small beach and there is some walking trails.
Come visit, plus find out about the history of the Ganaraska River and what it did to the Town of P.H??

MOVIES

We have had some filming done in Port Hope as well. Our most recent flim is 'MOLLY', set in the 1940's, it will be on the Disney Channel in the Fall of 2006. They were in town filming on June 1 & 2. My daughter and I tried out to be extras but no such luck.
I have been an extra in one film, 'Conspiracy of Silence' in the 90's.

    An excellent presentation of your home town. We love Ontario, but haven't made it to Port Hope yet.
