4/5 based on 500+ 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.

  • As a link between the districts of North and West Vancouver and Stanley Park, the staging of the Lions Gate Bridge is simply spectacular. The cross it or not - which by the way, only be by-road, depends on oneself, but the truth is that the views are very beautiful. For moviegoers, it should be noted that the bridge in question is where much of the film 'Final destination 5' was filmed.

  • We crossed this bridge many times when we were in Vancouver. Avoide during high traffic periods, don't break down or have an accident on it as it will be very expensive in fines. 
  • Enjoyed the drive across the bridge but getting to it from Stanley Park took two tries as signage needs a little help. Other than that, it was a fun place to view the area from. 
  • Lions Gate Bridge is one of my favourite bridges in Vancouver and i like the views. You can see everywhere including Stanley Park. Bad part is traffic delays but still a nice bridge.
  • Beautiful but narrow and unreliable! When there is an accident you may have to wait for hours!
  • It's a beautiful suspension bridge. Great for taking photos.
  • Beautiful view. Too much traffic. Ocean view is phenomenal.
  • Awesome place to visit if you appreciate engineering and architecture.
