Peggy's Cove & Titanic
Information is not currently available.
Approximately 4½ hours
Visit two of Halifax's most popular landmarks -- Peggy's Cove and the Fairview Lawn Cemetery. The latter is the final resting place of 121 passengers of the Titanic.
Your expedition begins with breathtaking views of wooded coastal roads as you travel along the Lighthouse Route. You're on your way to the historic community of Peggy's Cove. Hear how glaciers and constant pounding from ocean waves have shaped the granite shores of this world-renowned village. During your visit see the Peggy's Cove Lighthouse, which has been an inspiration for generations of writers, photographers and painters.
Don't miss the famous deGarthe Monument, which artisan William deGarthe carved in the coarse stone, and take time to explore the shops and galleries around this working fishing community before return to town via St Margaret's Bay.
At the Fairview Lawn Cemetery, your kilted guide will walk the grounds with you, bringing to life the tale of the great ship Titanic and its ill-fated maiden voyage. Discover the true identities of the unknown child and J. Dawson -- both recovered from the icy waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Their stories are part of a legacy that continues to fascinate visitors more than 100 years later.
Please note: The main venues at Peggy's Cove are wheelchair accessible; however, many of the smaller shops are not. Wear comfortable walking shoes.
