One-Day Charlottetown Historic and Cultural Highlights Tour
Charlottetown is the birthplace of Canadian Confederation but still a modern, developing city, and a culinary powerhouse at the heart of Canada’s Food Island. The Charlottetown Highlights Tour is the best way to see and learn about historic and modern-day Charlottetown, the capital of Prince Edward Island.
Start the day from St Dunstan’s Basilica. This is the fourth Catholic church on this site – the last one burnt down after only six year with a design which was modelled on St Patrick’s Cathedral in New Yorks.
Check out the Confederation Centre art gallery for changing exhibits of Canada artworks, with a mix of paintings, sculptures and installations taken from over 17,000 objects in their collection.
Historic Province House is a peaceful place to wander around.Then take a 30-minute walk across the city to the Charlottetown Farmers’ Market for lunch. The market features food producers from across the island, selling fresh produce and tasty homemade dishes, from Thai noodles and Mexican tacos to cupcakes and Dutch poffertjes.
Walk off lunch on your way to Victoria Park, passing some of the city’s most impressive houses along the waterfront. Follow the boardwalk along the water’s edge until you reach Peake’s Wharf, where the Fathers of Confederation first came ashore.
