A Picturesque Harbor and a Garden by the Sea
Founded by loyalists who moved to Canada
after the American Revolution, St. Andrews by-the-Sea in New Brunswick
is known today as one of the most charming towns in Canada. Explore the historic heart of St. Andrews by-the-Sea, at low tide when you drive to Ministers Island, where you’ll find the enchanting summer home of Sir William Van Horne, the president and driving force behind the Canadian Pacific Railway. Don’t leave without visiting Kingsbrae Garden
, named one of the top ten public gardens in Canada. An interpretive guided tour will take you through the themed gardens located on 27 acres of grounds planted with 50,000 perennials, trees and shrubs. A traditional afternoon tea in the historic Garden Café, with its splendid views, is an ideal way to end your visit while a package of Kingsbrae flower seeds will let you bring a little piece of New Brunswick to your own garden.
