Quidi Vidi Village
Once being a historic fishing village, Quidi Vidi Village is charming and scenic. Main charms include Mallard Cottage, Quidi Vidi Inn of Olde, Quidi Vidi Brewing Company and Quidi Vidi Battery.
As a Registered Heritage Structure, Mallard Cottage is one of the oldest houses in St. John’s. The white Irish cottage was built in the late eighteenth.
When you wander around Quidi Vidi Village and get thirsty, it’s worth checking out the Quidi Vidi Inn of Olde, an old-fashioned neighborhood bar.
Quidi Vidi Battery is a provincial historic site and represents an important period in the history of Newfoundland and Labrador.
Built in 1777, there are no longer remains of the original fort that played a key role in the defence of the city. Today, the Fort has a lighthouse and remains of WWII guns that were used to defend against German U-boats.
The Rooms is the place where you can immerse yourself in Newfoundland culture. It houses the Art Gallery of Newfoundland and Labrador, the Provincial Archives of Newfoundland and Labrador and the Provincial Museum of Newfoundland and Labrador. It also offers a spectacular view of the harbour.
The street has the most pubs and bars per capita of any street in North America, and is known to have bars that are open later than most others throughout Canada. It’s the centre of the entertainment and festivities.
