Attractions near the Fairmont Chateau Laurier
Ride the Rideau Canal
Whether you’re visiting in summer or winter, take some time to discover the UNESCO World Heritage Site located just outside your hotel – the Rideau Canal. Dating back to 1832, this 202-kilometre canal was originally built as a precaution against attack from the US. These days it’s one of the city’s best-loved attractions.
In the warmer months the gardens and parklands on the banks of the canal are perfect for a picnic or leisurely stroll. In winter, you can join the locals and take to the ice when the canal transforms into a natural ice rink. It’s an annual Ottawan tradition to skate the canal, but if you’re not game enough to hit the ice, simply soak up the vibrant atmosphere. Hot chocolate stands add to the festivities, and little ones can enjoy the frozen canal on miniature red sleighs.
Discover Parliament House
Featuring striking Gothic-style architecture, Ottawa’s Parliament House is one of the city’s landmark buildings. With a prime location on a hill overlooking the Ottawa River, you can enjoy spectacular views on your visit.
Discover the history and stories of this building during the free guided tours that run daily, or climb the Peace Tower for sweeping city views. Don’t miss the iconic sounds of the 53-bell carillon housed in the Peace Tower, which toll every 15 minutes. If you happen to visit on July 1 you won’t be the only one – Parliament House attracts hundreds of thousands of people to celebrate Canada Day with fireworks and entertainment.
