Charlottetown is the capital of Prince Edward Island and the “Birthplace of Canada”. It was here that the Fathers of Confederation first met and agreed to discuss plans for a country that would stretch from “sea to sea”. It’s no wonder that Charlottetown is home to exceptional cultural experiences.
At Province House National Historic Site visit the room where the “Fathers of Confederation” met, and our working Legislature still meets. Stroll on a guided walking tour of our historic district and take in reenactments of historic events. Visit the official residence of PEI’s Lieutenant Governor, stay in a restored historic property, or tour an elegant Victorian home. Enjoy the scale and architecture of our historic district.
In Charlottetown, you will find our military past on display, and our Celtic heritage onstage. Jazz and blues and theatre festivals fill the summer. Throughout the city, art and photography galleries, glass and woodworking studios invite you to visit and to become a part of the culture and heritage of our capital.
