St. John was obviously a popular chap in these parts as evidenced by the fact that two cities in Atlantic Canada bear his name. This is St. John’s, the capital of Newfoundland and Labrador, as opposed to the St. John that can be found in New Brunswick.

Located on the eastern tip of the Avalon Peninsula, St. John’s is the easternmost point of North America and is also the oldest town founded by the English on the continent. It is perched on the steep slopes of the harbour and features multi-coloured row houses lining the local streets in a manner that some have suggested is reminiscent of San Francisco.

However, this is a million miles (or 1.6 million km) from California and not just in terms of the climate. Newfoundland in general and St. John’s in particular retains its historical standing as the centre of the local English colony but also revels in its small-town appeal. It is no surprise then that many visitors arriving on cheap flights to St. John’s choose to use the city as a base while getting to know the surrounding area including the Witness Bay Ecological Reserve and Cape Spear.

What is good to know if travelling to St. John's?

  • After landing on cheap flights to St. John’s, a wander through the narrow streets of the city will give you a flavour of the place and its unique atmosphere. You will stumble across countless shops, boutiques, restaurants and galleries but there are two streets that should not be missed on your tour. The first is Water Street, one of the oldest commercial thoroughfares in North America that is today lined with restaurants and eateries offering a wide array of foods from the area and the world.
  • The other avenue of note is George Street, which is the perfect place to unwind after a busy day. This cobblestone street is home to many of the local, bars, clubs and pubs and comes to life once the sun has gone down. The George Street Festival is a must-see for anyone visiting St. John’s in early August.
  • The Cathedral of St. John the Baptist enjoys several claims to fame including that of being Canada’s first parish (1699) and standing as an excellent example of ecclesiastical Gothic architecture – perhaps the finest on the continent. It also features a gargoyle from the 12th
  • century that was a gift from the Diocese of Bristol in the UK.
  • For a complete cultural immersion be sure to seek out The Rooms, which houses the Provincial Museum, the Provincial Art Gallery and the Provincial Archives under one roof. Named after and based loosely on the concept behind the fishing rooms that once featured large in the area as the place where families gathered to process their catch, The Rooms is likewise a place for people to come together – though in a setting that most people would agree smells a lot better.
  • Finally there is nothing like a thirst-quenching pint to conclude a busy day of sightseeing and that’s where Quidi Vidi Brewing comes in. The microbrewery is housed in a former fish-processing plant on a tiny wharf on the outskirts of town. Well-worth seeking out for anyone fond of a pint or two.
