Lions Gate Bridge, Vancouver

(600+ reviews on the web)
Bridge Tourist Spot
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.

  • This very handsome bridge has aged well. Nice wide sidewalks on either side easily fit bikes and pedestrians. Fantastic views up either side of the Indian Arm. It vibrates a lot with the traffic though, so taking photos with long exposures can be a pain.
  • The bridge works! It's green! You can drive, bike, or walk across it! Great views of the harbour. Would be very easy to jump off, but it seems too dangerous to give it a try.
  • The Golden Gate of Vancouver. Such a beautifully made bridge. The lights and color pallet add it it's amazing design.
  • Take transit over this bridge and you will save 20mins of your life each way. Beautiful views if your stick in traffic though
  • Entrance to the harbour and a beautiful entrance to Stanley Park from the North Shore. The night lighting is great for pics and a sight to see
