Gastown in Vancouver

Gastown Images  | Restaurants |Location | Map


Vancouver’s Gastown is keeping some very stylish company.

Gastown's trendy mix of heritage buildings and upmarket shops has just been named the fourth-most-stylish neighbourhood in the world, outdone only by New York’s SoHo, Tokyo’s Harajuku and the neighbourhood judged the world’s most stylish, the First Arrondisement in Paris
Historic Gastown is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Vancouver. Conveniently located within walking distance of Canada Place in the heart of Vancouver. Gastown is famous for its cobblestone streets, its excellent restaurants, it's steam clock, and its shops.

Gastown is the Vancouver's oldest downtown neighbourhood and is where the city of Vancouver began. Today, the area is a charming mix of old and new with its cobbled streets, antique gaslights, Victorian architecture, and unique tangle of mews, courtyards and passage housing boutiques, restaurants, and entertainment.

Hotels in Gastown are located just a few blocks away and are easily accessible on foot ranging from a 5 minute walk to a 20 minute walk from most major hotels in downtown Vancouver.

Visit the world's first Steam Clock - each 1/4 hour the clock sounds Westminster chimes on 5 brass steam whistlers.

The Fisherhead Water Fountain stands near the Lamplighter Pub in the Dominion Hotel - it was the first Vancouver establishment to serve alcohol to women.
