We wandered around the outside which was very beautiful and then we found out we could get a free tour. It was interesting, informative and very pretty.

Delightful architecture and pleasant surrounding gardens and only a short walk from Vieux Quebec. Well worth a visit.

Clean, interesting flowers, veggies and herbs being grown. A lot of information on the plaques and a lot of staff on hand to answer questions. A fun morning for a family. Bring a blanket for a picnic since the grounds are very well kept up.

The building and the entire site is very beautiful, but what I liked the most was the tour itself. It was very informative and interesting, telling us about the history of Quebec and the political life of the capital. I am not a fan of politic but I really enjoyed the tour!

They take you on a free guided tour of the building but you only get to see 2 of the main rooms on a tour that lasts about half an hour. Disappointing since you don't get to see more of the building. Make sure you bring your ID.

My hotel room overlooked it and it's beautifully lit up and night. The grounds couldn't be nicer with gardens, sculpture, fountains and many other things to see and do. It's also very close to all the other tourist sites.

Impressive gardens, statues and architecture. Is very close for anyone staying in the Hilton and/or Delta hotels (literally just across the street!).

The gardens were stunning along with the historic Parliament building! Not to be missed! The views from this part of the Upper City were beautiful.

I read numerous reviews about Le Parlementaire Restaurant inside the Quebec Legislative building and decided to inquire about having a dinner there for a group of 100 in conjunction to an association convention I was organizing. From the very first call right through to the conclusion of our event, I cannot say enough about this place. First of all the... More

The Parliament Building is worth a visit just to see the great exterior - all the statues of Quebec's influential figures. If you have time the tour is just under 1 hour and interesting in that Quebec Senators abolished their own assembly by voting themselves out of a job. If only we could get are a Federal Senators to do... More
