Government House, Halifax

(4.7/5 based on 35 reviews on the web)
Government House of Nova Scotia is the official residence of the Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia, as well as that in Halifax of the Canadian monarch. It stands in the provincial capital at 1451 Barrington Street; unlike other provincial Government Houses in Canada, this gives Nova Scotia's royal residence a prominent urban setting, though it is still surrounded by gardens.

  • Place with so much history. I accompanied my friend for her citizenship oath taking and I was so appreciative of the warm welcome of the staff and immigration officer and employees. This is a must see during the Doors Open Halifax event.
