Wondering the narrow streets of Lunenburg’s Old Town, it’s not difficult to see why this place is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Considered the best surviving planned British colonial town in North America, the well-preserved, colourfully painted architecture is enough to transport you back through the centuries.
The town’s harbour is equally quaint, with a rich maritime history on display at every turn. It’s on the waterfront, too, that you’ll find the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic, which details what life on the open ocean is really like.
Set majestically among the town’s charms, the brightly coloured Mariner King Inn offers old-world charm with all the contemporary comforts and conveniences the modern traveller would expect.
