This is quite a sight to see, the titanic graves. I would recommend it to anyone that has any interest in the titanic or history. My wife has only a tiny bit of interest in either and found it very interesting. The area is well...More

Very interesting for Titanic followers, but not centrally located. It is, in my opinion, best suited for tour visits with someone who interprets what you are seeing and tells the stories that go with it. A quiet peaceful place.

My wife is Irish and has a fascination for cemeteries so this was right up her street. If travelling independently you need to get a taxi and ask it to wait as there are no taxi ranks nearby. A trip from downtown plus about 12...More

Like much of Halifax history, this is part of that tragedy and history. Plenty of parking. A somber reminder of the scope of what occurred.

IF your into the Titanic history then this is a place for you. Our tour guide provided much of backstory so it made it interesting. Not sure you would get it all if you went on your own

Its a well kept cemetery, and they are well prepared for the inevitable visitors looking for the Titanic grave sites. Small and tasteful memorial. There were a few people, all respectful, but apparently the occasional bus tour does show up.

This cemetery really brings home the disaster of the Titanic. It is the final resting place of over 100 Titanic victims - some of them still not identified.

We were exploring Halifax on our own and this was a great stop. Full of history. The placards were excellent in explaining the Titanic Grave Sites. Signage was helpful.

I though it was really cool getting to see where 150 people who died on the titanic were buried. Very nice stop

Good information as you begin the walk. Sad to visit but felt rewarding too at the same time to pay our respects to all of the victims. Also was going it for the Halifax citizens who "fished" out the bodies. Cannot imagine how they felt...More

Fairview Cemetery is a long walk from Halifax's downtown but it is on a bus route - the excellent tourist information centre will be able to help you with that. If you are walking with a cane you shouldn't have too much... More

There are signs to follow to the Titanic section, easy to find and park. Not sure about the explosion?
