Town of Hampton

The Town of Hampton, located 30 km northeast of Saint John, is a small, friendly community with many points of interest and beautiful natural scenery. Nestled on the Kennebecasis River, which is the largest tributary of the St. John River, the town’s rolling hills, waterways, farmland, wildlife and world-renowned marsh area reward visitors with a visual feast.

Hampton is proud to be the birthplace of John Peters Humphrey, who in 1947 wrote the first draft of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and founded Amnesty International Canada in 1973.

You can explore the Dutch Point Trail system, admire the breathtaking view of the Hampton Marsh from a roadside lookout, or bird watch from the Spooner Island gazebo. Our heritage homes and architecture will take you back in time, and our friendly residents will make you feel at home. Hampton…It’s our nature!
