Beautiful views on either side... almost distracting... i suggest walking across or bike riding... and faster going north.... coming back south usually takes forever traffic jammed up... avoid rush hour!

We viewed the bridge from underneath during our 2 visits to Stanley Park. It looked spectacular and we were fortunate enough to see a large ship sail underneath. Later in our holiday we drove over it to go to the North side. Saw the lions briefly. As bridges go it was ok.

To enjoy the spectacular views from the Lions Gate bridge and see some of Vancouver North shore this day trip by public transport and walking might be of interest. Take the Seabus from the Waterfront Station across to Lonsdale Quay. Great views of the Vancouver skyline and harbour en route with the Lions Gate bridge and Stanley Park framing the... More

This bridge used to hold private traffic from the rich West Vancouver people who built it. It only has 3 lanes. Constantly busy and can be clogged at rush hours. Beautiful views from this bridge, it connects Vancouver thru Stanley park to West Vancouver.......everyonce in awhile they talk about twinning it....congestion city is my recollection .

Driving over the bridge (or bussing) on a clear sunny day is awesome as you get to see the Lions, the mountains and all the water sparkling away. On the way back, if you have time you can drive around Stanley Park and be at the same exit point as you would have just on the driveway from the bridge.... More

We rode our bikes every day around the base of the bridge in Stanley Park, and were fortunate enough to have clear views of it every day. Taking pictures of the bridge is a must, and we were able to get some pretty incredible pictures of it. I would recommend seeing the bridge up close at least once while in... More

Originally built by the Guinness family and tolled to pay for it, Lion's Gate Bridge is a beautiful suspension bridge from Stanley Park/Downtown to the North Shore. It is a beautiful drive but is best enjoyed if you have the chance to walk across it.

Stopping above the bridge for a photo op, and proceeding to the look out is a must for any visitor to Vancouver. If you can get a foggy day the photographs become works of art!

This bridge itself is beautiful, connecting Stanley Park with North Vancouver. So either side you look from the bridge is terrific.

This is a beautiful bridge. The architecture is impressive.The view from the bridge is very nice. You can see North Vancouver in the mountains, as well as Stanley Park.
