If you want some good pictures the wait to get up to the Peace Tower was worth it. Great views and free with the Parliament tour free admission.

Get your free tickets from over the road. You get great views from the peace tower if you have a head for heights ..

Located at Parliament Hill this Peace Tower clock is worth a mention as it is really beautiful and easy to enjoy. You will hear it sound on the hour and every half hour I believe. Its easy to see from many spots in Ottawa.

After a visit to Parliament, we waited to go into the elevator to the top of the Peace Tower. The 360 degree views from the top are the best in Ottawa!

Breathtaking view from the top! I definitely recommend going up the peace tower, because the view is totally worth it! In the winter, all the snow covering the city is just beautiful.

Was a long wait to get up to the tower but once there it was amazing. Great views not to crowded. The tower is free along with the tour of parliament. Is very much worth seeing.,

We were unlucky in that when we went up the Peace Tower it was raining heavily. Obtaining a ticket was straight forward (and free) although it was a little inconvenient having to cross the road in the opposite direction to the vistor centre.

This is the best view of Ottawa and it is free to enjoy with a complitplentary tour of center block. I had some vertigo up there with the four walls of windows and the height, but it gave you a panoramic view of the entire area.
