Take time to explore the shops and galleries around this working fishing community before returning to town.
At the Fairview Lawn Cemetery, your guide will walk the grounds with you, bringing to life the tale of the great ship Titanic and its ill-fated maiden voyage. Discover the true identities of the unknown child and J. Dawson, both recovered from the icy waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

Need to Know:
Note: Walking at Peggy's Cove is optional, if you choose to explore the area, wear warm clothing, a raincoat and sturdy low-heeled shoes, as the wind often carries salt water spray great distances. At the village, walking is over uneven or cobblestone streets, standing for an extended period of time. At the cemetery ground is uneven with inclines. This is a small capacity tour by van.
