You'll get a chance to visit the Peace Tower when you take the guided tour of the Parliament building. An elevator takes you up and upon stepping out of it, you'll be mesmerized. Enjoy it and take it all in.

“Often overlooked”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

It is free to go up the Peacetower and gives you awesome views of the City, the Ottawa River and Gatineau. Worth a moment if you are touring Parliament anyway.

“O Canada”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

A tourist attraction that will impress all visitors. This is where it all happens for our Country. The peace tower is very impressive as is the entire parliament buildings. You can also enjoy the changing of the guards each morning during the summer

“Amazing views of Ottawa from 302 feet up”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

Peace Tower has the most amazing views of Ottawa and best of all the tour is free. On the elevator ride up and down you can see the bells in the tower.
