Take things down a gear during a relaxing stroll through Annapolis Royal Historic Gardens. Established in 1986 in a scenic position overlooking a tidal river valley, the gardens explore Nova Scotia's natural heritage, as well as the changing ways that communities have tamed, used, and appreciated the plant life native to the region. Walk through the historically themed gardens, such as an apple orchard arranged according to 18th-century practices; a Victorian garden bright with colorful annuals; and a large pine forest, representing pre-Columbian times when the area was inhabited by the Mi'kmaq.

  • The flowers were really nice. Although it is the end of the season, we enjoyed walking the grounds and seeing the last of summer flowers. Beautiful marsh/ocean views.

  • Absolutely stunning. Most plants were labeled, which added to the experience in being able to take in, enjoy, and remember the sights. The artistic birdwatching exhibit was a nice surpise, and we bought a ceramic bird and some flower seeds from the adorable gift shop to commemorate our visit. I could have easily spent the day here enjoying the gardens, but we were just passing through as tourists! Definitely worth seeing!
  • 17 acres of splendid! We decided last minute to take a stroll through the gardens and so glad we did! It was a lovely way to spend the afternoon. The gardens are amazing!!
