Old warehouses beautifully restored house the Museum and many restaurants and shops. The location is perfect, the view on the Bay of funny from many terraces is memorable. The lovely Harbour Passage is near-by.

What a great place to see - make sure to check out all of the carved statues as well as across the street at the General Store. Market Square has some great pubs for dinning in as well as drinks.

I loved the old buildings around the city. Very quaint. Although this market is much smaller then St Lawrence market in Toronto, it was lovely to walk around. All the vendors were very friendly, chatty, and warm. The wheelchair accessibility was fine. Along with goods...More
