DISCOVER THE OLD AND THE NEW OF MULTICULTURAL MONTRÉAL

Fly direct from London to Montréal or take a scenic six-hour drive from Toronto or New York and discover the diverse attractions of Québec’s biggest city. Holidays in Montréal are where old meets new and the cultures of English and French-speaking Canada mix with those of the First Nations and a strong Asian community to make a colourful and cosmopolitan city.

Walk the picturesque streets of Old Montréal, a Parisian district grown over four centuries with historic buildings converted into boutique hotels, fine restaurants, and local galleries. Discover the brilliant stained glass windows and 7000-pipe organ of Notre Dame Basilica. Explore underground history at Pointe-à-Callière beneath the streets at the old colonial centre of Place Royal. Or celebrate the high culture of the Opera, Ballet, and Montréal Symphony Orchestra at the incredible Place des Arts Complex and its bustling esplanade filled with sculptures, fountains, and water cascades.

Look out from the peak of Mont Royal itself. Stroll the Old Port waterfront, where public art sits beside the IMAX theatre, a thrilling zipline, La Grand roue de Montréal ferris wheel, Montréal Science Centre, and a man-made beach. Cycle the Canadian Grand Prix circuit or immerse yourself in the Environment Museum in the majestic Expo ‘67 Biosphere on the islands of Parc Jean Drapeau.

Sample artisan produce among the vibrant atmospheres of Atwater and Jean Talon markets. Wander the inspiring corridors of the Museum of Fine Arts, Canada’s oldest museum. Soak up the energy of Montréals Latin Quarter, the beauty of Les Jardin Botanique, and the rich fragrances of the restaurants in the old Victorian homes of Square Saint Louis and Rue Denis.

Whether you’re discovering Canada on a family holiday, looking for a beautiful romantic escape, or seeking a friendly city to party in, you can’t go wrong with Montréal.

Mont Royal

Drive, bus, or take a gentle hike up the slopes of Mont Royal, the dominating landmark after which the city below is named, and enjoy panoramic views across Île de Montréal to the Saint Lawrence River beyond.
