  • Going to Kings Landing is an annual adventure with our family and we absolutely love it. Of course, we expect it to stay pretty much the same - check out the agricultural building, stop into the print shop, visit with the numerous animals at the barn and then cross the stream at the mill (with working waterwheel) to visit the village, stopping for lunch. Even with 2 young children (1.5 and 5 months) who have almost no interest in being inside a house, the walk alone is worth the 20$ adult admission. Situated along the river, it's got a nice breeze and always some shade available to make a wonderful walk. During the weekends, there are additional events in the town - from log pulling, log tosses, learning how wood was sawed using a horse, sything, and even a sing along at the church. The actors are positively jovial and so pleasant. Our oldest son interacted with two lovely women playing a game involving round cuts of wood...he loved bringing the wooden circles back to them and they were so sweet with him. Ending the day with a wagon ride back to the beginning is possibly the most anticipated part of the visit back in time. The only problem we had while visiting Kings Landing was the restaurant which was rather disappointing - the lemonaid and bread are always awesome (I remember it from 20+ years ago when I went for the first time) but the service was incredibly slow (only 2 waitresses on a busy weekend from what we could tell) and things like ketchup, pickles from my meal, my son's drink, etc were forgotten until later. We were also not offered a high chair and ended up finding one ourselves. If you have small children, it almost might be worth packing a small lunch or having dinner before you go. The wait was almost an hour and it really did seem just understaffed that day. The gift shop is okay, it's generic crafts with 'kings landing' put on it or a few handmade crafts which are extremely expensive but a fun memento. The best souvenir is always the print shop bookmarks - and they're free. Finally, this year we either came at the right time or there is a new element to K.L. There are special 2hr- classes for 30$ on different weekends. My husband is now signed up for the Blacksmith class and will be learning to make a nail and a hook while learning a bit more about something he's interested in. It's an absolutely fantastic idea and for someone who has a specific interest in historical jobs/hobbies, this is perfect! As always, we'll be back next year (and for many years to come). It's the perfect family location, doesn't allow smoking apart from a few very secluded smoking spots far away from the crowd, and is a great day.
  • Wonderful place to visite. Staff very, very friendly. I really enjoyed my visit and definitely plan to go again soon :)
  • It was fun. Very interesting. These people had a hard life compared to us. One thing that did disappoint me was their ice cream shop was not homemade ice cream. Gift shops usually gouge you but their prices were very fair. They have tourism brochures for places all over New Brunswick.
  • We always love returning here & our girls love the addition of the horseback & pony rides! Also the education corner was loved by our girls (ages 2& 5) & our 12 year old niece loved learning how to embroider.
  • Visited on a rainy day in early June with our 9-month old daughter and had a wonderful time. Staff are very friendly and informative. The village was bustling with life, even on a regular crumby day. Leave at least 4-5 hrs if you want to see everything. Be sure to visit the blacksmith and he may forge you a nail to take home.
