This was a most fitting end to my tour of the central building of the Houses of Parliament. I was most impressed by the views from the top of the tower, and liked the gold ceiling. It is worth mentioning that it is free if included in the tour of the centre parliament building. A really worthwhile experience.

A must see for first time visitors. Located in the middle of the Parliament Buildings, the tower features a memorial for those who perish in World War I. It's beautiful architecture, a carillon bell and four panels of stained glasses offer enough reasons for a visit.

I have been there times and time on. The tower, eternal flame and surroundings are so peaceful. This is a place to admire, watch fireworks, light and sound show and when necessary to protest and put vigils

Went on the free tour of The Peace Tower. Stunning views of Ottawa can be seen from the Tower. Unfortunately only one elevator was working and they are very small so not for the claustraphobic.

Tourists often make a visit to the Peace Tower number one on their lists of "things to see" and well should they.

Beautiful clock tower. Helped us to keep track of time while walking the area. Couldn't go inside due to Obama visit.
