About town

Rich and colourful, rugged and refined, St. John’s is the creative capital, and the beating cultural heart of the province. Woven into our history and tradition is a new wave of art, architecture, music, and cuisine all waiting for you to discover.

As many businesses have experienced operational changes under COVID-19 restrictions, we strongly recommend contacting them directly to confirm details before planning your visit.

Explore our town by taking a guided tour of the colourful cityscape and historic sites, pop into a gallery or museum to see Newfoundland & Labrador through a curated lens, or hike past icebergs and whales. Being the most easterly city in North America comes with the perks of endless coastlines and amazing ocean views

After a day of exploring the colourful neighbourhoods of St. John’s unwind and get ready to tap your toes to fiddles and mandolins in one of the city’s many live music venues. Generations of influence from Ireland and the British Isles make St. John’s no stranger to pubs, pints, and laughs. Fancy something different? As home to one of North America’s premier entertainment districts, we have every variety of nightlife, enjoyed by a genuine mix of locals and visitors alike.
