“Nice addition to a tour”
Review of Peace Tower

Peace Tower
Ranked #9 of 299 things to do in Ottawa
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 8, 2017

It wasn't a clear day when I went up but it was still a nice addition to the to the tour of Parliament. You have to go up in the lift of another six people which can cause some delays up and down, and also be a little claustrophobic.

When at the top you do have a good view of the city even on a cloudy day, then you also have boards explaining what you were looking at and also some historic panorama photos.

Needless to say, the Peace Tower is certainly one of the MUST SEE attractions in Ottawa. It is part of the Parliament visit. The 360' view from the top of the tower is just great. Find out your self or look at some of the pictures taken!

This elevator is actually on a 9 deg incline. You can't tell when riding it. You can see when the elevators open up and you look up through the gap. It is quite interesting. As you ride up, be sure to look for the bells in the small window. The first bell is so large that you can't tell it is a bell.

The views are quite nice and you only stay up there a few mins. The viewing area is quite small. You might spend more time waiting in line than actually viewing the city.

Our tour included a trip to the tower - beautiful; there is a small chapel dedicated to the soldiers fallen in a number of wars that Canada was in

Worth the wait to see overall view of Ottawa. However you have to get the free tickets from 90 Wellington Street first. I arrived at 1pm and had a 2pm on a Friday. Parliament tickets were out. Your patience of getting through the tight security screening will be rewarded once you took the elevator up. See bells during the ride up. Must do if you are in Ottawa
