The Cockpit Theatre located at the north-east corner on the Dundurn Castle grounds has been used for outdoor theatre and weddings in recent years. It is beautifully rustic and will make you feel you have travelled back to pre-Confederation times. 

The building is a two-story neo-classical, octagonal design sitting at the edge of the natural embankment overlooking Hamilton Bay. This is a rare piece of architecture built into the landscape with views to and from the Castle and the water.
