This was part of our tour to visit the graves of 120 victims from the famous Titanic ship that hit an iceberg. Our tour guide was excellent telling us the story of the people who were laid to rest there.

Fairview Cemetery is a long walk from Halifax's downtown but it is on a bus route - the excellent tourist information centre will be able to help you with that. If you are walking with a cane you shouldn't have too much... More
