Though under construction now, this is a Capitol with old world charm. Had fun exploring the many grand buildings and from different angles. Canada's House of Lord's has moved buildings. Enjoy a good walk around the sites. Well worth a visit and stroll.

We attended the light and sound show at the parliament hill and it was one of the best shows I have ever seen. The show is for half an hour and it demonstrates Canada’s rib history. The show was jam packed. People were sitting on the grass. Some had even brought their picnic chairs (notes for the next time) and mats etc. Each and every part of the show was memorable. Check their website for timings before heading out.


It was a splendid experience, a must visit attraction for anyone going to Ottawa. There are free guided tours but the space is limited and passes are available at 90 Wellington starting 9 am, it is recommended to line up by 8 to get the passes for the desired slots. The security check was done very professionally and really progressed quickly. The exhibits specially the library was mind blowing. We also got a chance to see the house of Commons and listen to the debate since the session was in progress. The peace tower and memorial hall was also beautifully done. The views from the peace tower were really awesome. Everyone including the security, admin staff and the guide was very welcoming and would definitely go again. Please like my review if you find it helpful.

A light show about Canada's history up to modern day Canada on the parliament walls everyday at 9pm. Beautiful show. Better bring a tarp to sit on and a jacket because it gets cold. Animation is brilliant and the show is suitable for most ages.

This has been my go-to place every July 1st as there is usually lots of space in there.I gave it a 3-star because depending on what you order and if you have a good appetite like myself, you will find yourself likely still hungry at the end of your meal so it can get quite costly for a hungry man like myself. Food tasted great and never had a bad experience with poor service.
