Attached to Vancouver Downtown by a bridge, it’s interesting how the landscape dramatically changes once the bride is crossed into Granville island. You immediately feel you’ve gone to a small town with one story boutique stores lined the street, Neighbourhood cafes, and lots of artist...More

We took the small ferry for the aquatic centre port on the sea wall it cost $5.50/pp. We travelled there early for breakfast. We found fresh fruit, baking and hit chocolate. The Island is a market full of foods and crafts. We bought a necklace,...More

Our visit to Granville Island was very last minute when bad weather cancelled our plans for whale watching. We didn't get to see as much of the Island as we would've liked because of the rain, but we still had a great time. The Public...More

This fun little public market was a great place to spend a couple of hours. We picked up some fruit, a quick lunch and had a great time visiting.

I'm not convinced this is a must-see, the walk here is far from ideal with very busy roads, hobo-infested walkways and you have to take a really long route round and cut back on yourself to find the market area. The market is decent but...More

We love the Farmer’s Market and having dinner on Granville Island. Stores are nice to wander through. We’ve only ever driven over but taking the ferry looks like a lot of fun!

If you love craft you have to go to Granville island. Great place to appreciate the craft of others and to buy craft supplies. I loved visiting Maiwa.

One of the favoured neighbourhoods for a day out,
Granville Island's packed theatres and art studios,
hobby shops and book stores, restaurants and bars, all
offer a plethora of activities and entertainment

overhead and the smell of the sea invigorate its many
visitors, some of who are there to shop the fresh

Not sure of the accommodations at Granville, but it’s a nice place to look around. We stayed downtown (not far from Granville) at the four seasons hotel which gives you close walking access to Gastown, the seawall, Canada... More

I would avoid cars in Granville Island. Much easier and less of a headache taking public transport. Granville Island is not built for cars I think that taking the false creek ferry would be a better option.
