Everyone needs to experience the ambiance of Granville Island. Catch a tiny ferryboat across for an added experience, or a hop on hop off bus, or a local bus, or a taxi! None of them cost much. Grab a map and start exploring. Start early...More

You can see all the good stuff in about four hours. Take the small ferry to get there. One of the Stanley Park trollies has a stop close to the boarding dock. It is clean and safe.

It's a large market place. We took a water taxi across to Granville Island. Lovely market! Such an array of amazing, fresh produce. The honey we purchased is to die for and the pure maple syrup is best quality and cheaper than anywhere you will...More

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
options, leaving no one bored. The highlight of the

I cannot suggest parking, as we did not rent a car, but instead walked from our local hotel. Nonetheless, your available time to enjoy Granville Island’s stores and restaurants is ample. Enjoy yourselves!

Any place on the Island will gladly accept almost any form of payment, There is no set rate. The exchange rate will vary from shop to shop. Unless you are aware of the bank rate you may pay more than you need to.
