I could hardly find any evidence of all these battles on the plains of Abraham. After all, there had been several battles between the English and the French. There should be more evidence! However, most people don’t even remember what happened here. This is a lovely park, where many enjoy doing their picnics. There is quite a lot of place... More

We experienced the Plains of Abraham during a cold spell. A couple feet of snow had been dumped the previous day. This made for excellent snowshoeing conditions. They have well groomed cross country skiing trails as well.you can rent both snowshoes or ski's at the chalet next to the skating rink. It's very reasonably priced. Snowshoes are $9/hour and skis...

I had to make this one quick as I had a day tour organised but the museum was a good introduction to get a feel for the grounds. The grounds themselves can take a day but the museum was a good starting point

My review is based solely on my winter experience. And I can only imagine how equally beautiful it is in the summer. Canadians embrace winter. The Plains offer ample opportunity to XC ski, skate ski, snow shoe, just hike, ice skate, sled...it's all there. And if you bring your own equipment, it's all free!!!! great views of the St. Lawrence... More

This is definitely a site to see and 100% worth a visit!! More of the issue was the signage or lack of and the fact the maps were pictures but not as much labelling in French or English. Ensure before hand to go online and chart out your trek since there were parts we wanted to see that we struggled... More

This area is amazing from start to finish. In the summer it would be beautiful and green with winter it is just as beautiful with its blanket of snow. The walk through is exhilarating with stunning views

We walked from Hilton here and it wasn't a great choice. Although the skating loop is quite big (and you can rent skates if you need them - we had our own), it was windy and the loop was rough. I thought the skating was closer to the old buildings but it was quite far from the Musee de Beaux-Arts.... More

We took an Uber from our hotel in the Old Town in order to take advantage of the cross country ski rentals at the Plains of Abraham. Very easy to get to, the trails were wonderful and there's a nice warm building by the skating rink to warm up in.

The museum is great. It offers a film and exhibits depicting the battle. Very clean, modern, and fun.

I did a guided tour and later a walk around the Plains of Abraham as it was close to my hotel. Like all places of historical interested the area is well preserved, information displays are on hand. Well worth a visit.
