This is a beautiful home! It's lovely and situated with a spectacular view of the water, and next to Victoria Park. It's obviously historically and politically significant, so even just a walk-by is worthwhile!

The history of PEI's government lies beyond these hallowed walls. For history buffs, this is a must-see venue.
