My son and I were looking for Victoria Park and wound up walking up a driveway that said something about pedestrian traffic allowed. This is, I believe, the home to the lieutenant governor. It is a really nice place, and I'd be happy to call...More

Exploring Charlottetown, we drove by the Government House. Open to the public, we strolled the grounds - enjoying the summer flowers and shrubbery. Worth the stop. Relax and enjoy the views.

Great place for a stroll with a couple of nice areas to sit and take in the view of the ocean and to smell the lilacs. The grounds are open to the public but the residence is only available for tours in July and August.

The grounds are open all year round for the public to enjoy, which are well maintained and very beautiful. Several benches to enjoy the tranquil space also. The sign says July and August there are tours, so check ahead for more details.

The gardens are lovely and the house looks as though it would be good for a visit in the right time of year.

We were delighted that we were able to stroll through the gardens and get up so close to the house itself. Unfortunately the house wasn't open when we were there, but I will try to coordinate my next visit to Charlottetown when it is open....More

We went to the Open House at the beginning of the month (Dec. 4th). This is such a beautiful house and it's lovely to see the gorgeous Christmas decorations in the 4 rooms that are open to the public. There was a youth choir singing...More

Although the house is only open for visits in the summer, the grounds are open all year round. Built in the 1830’s this would have been a very impressive building for the time. Kitty corner to Beaconsfield House you should visit both.

This magnificent historic home is the official residence of the Lieutenant Governor of PEI. It sits atop a hill within Victoria Park and overlooks the Charlottetown harbour, providing spectacular views. The grounds are impeccably kept and the gardens are beautiful. While the home was not...More
