Description
Your walking tour of Charlottetown starts on the city’s waterfront at Confederation Landing.

While on this street, you will pass by the Bishops Palace and the 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.

After this, the tour will start to head back toward the starting point by following the Victoria Boardwalk.
