What you can expect
Your walking tour of Charlottetown starts on the city’s waterfront at Confederation Landing. From here, the tour will progress up Great George St. which is known for the evolution of architecture displayed here with its beautifully preserved Georgian architecture on one side of the street and Gothic Revival architecture on the other side. While on this street, you will pass by the Bishops Palace and St. Dunstan's Basilica Cathedral which is considered to be the defining silhouette of Charlottetown.
Continuing onward, guests will stroll the grounds of Province House - also known as the birthplace of Confederation before heading over to Victoria Row. This area is well known for its daily live entertainment, local artists, artisan shops, cafes and farm-to-table restaurants. Guests will continue onward to view the Confederation Centre of the Arts where the world famous Anne of Green Gables play has been running for over 50 years!
Your tour will then continue on to pass multiple points of interest including: Confederation Court Mall, City Hall and Rochford Square before heading over to the Prince Edward Island government buildings. The government buildings are a stunning example of brutalist architecture. Here you will visit the Beaconsfield Historic House and the Government House of Prince Edward Island - which today serves as the home of the Lieutenant Governor of Prince Edward Island.
After this, the tour will start to head back towards the starting point by following the Victoria Boardwalk. Along the way guests will pass by the Culinary Institute of Canada, the Queen Charlotte Armoury, the PEI Convention Centre arriving back at Peakes Quay and Confederation Landing for the end of your tour.
