Legislative Building, Regina

4.5
#2 of 6 in Historic Sites in Regina
Architecture and history buffs will love Legislative Building, a grandiose structure that houses the Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan. The early 20th-century Beaux Arts building was designed by father and son architects William and Edward Sutherland Maxwell. Take a stroll in the pristine and ornate gardens before heading to the interior, complete with intricately carved wood panels and stained glass. Take a guided tour with a knowledgable staff member to bring your visit alive with stories and historical information. Plan my Regina trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • People visiting Regina should take some time to visit the Legislative Building. This is very impressive and once inside the marble, the artworks and craftsmanship are fantastic.  more »
  • The flowers across from the legislative building are gorgeous! We took many pictures and walked through the gardens to Wascana Lake. The area is dog friendly and people are friendly, too. We saw walke...  more »

  • The tour is pretty neat and free to check out, worthy of a stop if you are looking for something to do in the city or have been here for years and never been. The gift shop in the basement is full of souvenirs and local handcrafts too. The grounds are wonderful in the summer to wander around on.
  • Awesome your usually on the hour on the weekends! I've attended when the Legislative are assembled both on the floor and the balcony. It's great to see those who help form our province do their work in an open format even though I don't always agree with what's happening
  • Great place to take a class and learn avout the province. Thanks to JR for a wonderful tour. I brought my grade 5/6 students and he was great. He met them at their level and asked many thought provoking questions. He was also very accommodating to our bizarre schedule and sometimes odd requests. I definitely recommend. I went there this summer and I had Devon Peters as a guide. He was outstanding. My favorite part was that he shared a lot of the little known "fun facts" and not just the historical knowledge. He was entertaining and professional. He's also got a pretty stellar beard. 5/7 without rice. 10/10 with rice.
  • Beautiful grounds and amazing views. Lots of history. Is great to just walk around and check things out.
  • The tour was amazing! The tour guide was a bit snobby, but eventually we switched to a much nicer guide. I highly suggest taking this tour and hope that you don't get that snobby guide too. Other than the guide, it's 5 stars

Where to stay in Regina

For convenience, there's no better area to stay than the downtown, between the central station and Wascana Lake. If proximity to the station is important to you, stay north at one of the chain hotels along Saskatchewan Drive. If you'd rather be surrounded by greenery, look south to the more low-key accommodations along College Avenue, which backs onto the large park bordering the lake. Victoria Avenue offers a good selection of hotels in the center, as well as a large cluster of inns and motels as you head east toward the city limits.
