Lions Gate Bridge, Vancouver

(4/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Spanning the Burrard Inlet, Lions Gate Bridge represents one of the longest bridges in Canada and is an iconic symbol of the city. Covering total length of 1,823 m (5,890 ft), the bridge connects the main downtown area to North and West Vancouver. The suspension bridge is named after two mountain peaks to the north in the North Shore Mountains referred to as “The Lions.” To drive home the point, a pair of concrete lions sit on the south approach to the bridge. Walk or cycle over the bridge, which offers both mountain and urban views. Use our Vancouver travel itinerary planner to add Lions Gate Bridge and other attractions to your Vancouver vacation plans.

  • From my prospective, I love the bridge as the architecture is amazing but from someone else's prospective they may dislike it because of the back up in the day because there are very few lanes. This bridge is an amazing piece of architecture at the least.
  • This bridge is very pedestrian/bike friendly. It is used a lot for runners and bikers running to and from Stanley Park and North Vancouver. It is also pleasant to walk. It offers great view of the bay and the Vancouver skyline. I recommendation would be to park at either end and walk it.
  • Every city has a bridge that is iconic of the city. This is the bridge in Vancouver. The traffic driving across it is a nightmare but you can walk or cycle over it. The best view is probably from prospect point in Stanley park from the top or from the seawall if you want to see it from the bottom.
  • Beautiful piece of architecture that allows for views of Vancouver or the north shore. If you can, try biking over it and enjoy the view for a little while on a sunny day. It's a chance to stop and remember for beautiful the city can be.
  • Incredbile sight and a very cool drive going across!
