Parliament Hill, Ottawa

Parliament Hill is not simply the seat of Canada’s government. It can be fun entertainment with a little education thrown in for good measure. It is really quite an experience to visit the Parliament Buildings and you can pretty much spent the whole day here.

Start out with a tour of the center block where the Senate and House of Commons chambers and the library are located. The tours are free but there are limited tickets each day.  Afterward, you can visit the Peace Tower and enjoy the view from atop.

Between July and September you also get a chance to visit the East Block (pictured above), which used to be the center of the Canadian government. Also available are outdoor guided tours of the Parliament grounds, but you can also explore on your own.

Between June and August a very special performance is offered – the Changing of the Guards. And you can finish your day with the amazing Sound and Light Show.
