If you want to be in the heart of Hamilton, you should consider one of the Hamilton Centre neighbourhoods. These old communities have great access to Hamilton transit and the GO train and buses, have trendy restaurants nearby, and contain St. Joseph’s Healthcare (hospital), Hamilton General Hospital, and the Ron Joyce Children’s Health Centre.
Where is Hamilton Centre? Made up of Stinson, Corktown, Landsdale and Beasley, Hamilton Centre is in downtown Hamilton. The whole area is outlined by James St, Barton St, Wentworth St, and the mountain. Corktown is in the south-west (closest to the mountain), Stinson is in the south-east, Beasley is in the north-west, and Landsdale is in the north-east quadrant.

What are the houses like in Hamilton Centre? These communities were established in the mid-late 1800s, so houses of this era are still commonly found.

What are the best features of Hamilton Centre? This very old area in Hamilton has (in my opinion) the best arts and food scene in the city. It’s a fun community to be a part of, and you’ll never get tired of exploring the small businesses, the restaurants, and the art galleries. Make sure to head to Supercrawl on James every year, Hamilton’s Music and Arts Festival.
Thinking of moving to Hamilton Centre? The best way to experience a community is to spend some time there! Spend an evening hitting up a patio or bar along Augusta St, check out one of the art galleries or little shops on James St, or get that downtown vibe along King St.
