Arrival

Please enter our main entrance at the Welcome Centre. Upon arrival, you will be met by a costumed greeter to welcome you to Kings Landing. They will request to see proof of vaccination and a piece of government issued ID. This is mandatory before entering the Welcome Centre. Masks will no longer be required to visit Kings Landing, but members of our staff may still wear them.

As you enter the Welcome Centre, you may sanitize your hands if desired and make your way to the admissions counter, the Peddler’s Market or the Axe & Plough Café depending on the reason for your visit. Protective barriers will still be in place for the consideration of our staff.

Washrooms are available at the Welcome Centre, the King’s Head Inn and on site near the Parish School. Staff will continue to clean washrooms and common surfaces throughout the day.

When you are ready to make your way into the Village, please use the exit through the Indigenous Gallery and follow the “To the Past” floor signs.

In the Village

In the Village, you will find sanitizing stations have been placed in the buildings and throughout the site for your convenience. Historic buildings will have barriers between you and our staff: some are counters, Plexiglass, wood or rope and stanchions. Staff are encouraged to use these barriers and wear their masks if they wish.

Wagons

Each wagon stop is marked with a horse head silhouette and has a hand sanitizing station. You are welcome to sanitize and put on your mask before riding the wagons, but it is not necessary.

Dining

The King’s Head Inn will be offering indoor and outdoor dining at 50% capacity. The pub is also open for guests to enjoy refreshing libations. For food and drink menus, click here.

The Axe & Plough Café offers to-go bakery treats, coffee and ice cream. Seating is available indoors and outdoors, and the public is welcome to submit pre-orders via telephone for various baked goods, including Mary’s Famous Brown Bread. For more information about the Axe & Plough Café and the pre-order menu, click here.

Shopping

Located in the Welcome Centre, the Peddler’s Market is home to a collection of special gifts and souvenirs of Kings Landing and New Brunswick. There’s something for everyone and one-of-a-kind products only found at Kings Landing. You don’t have to pay admission to Kings Landing to visit the store and shop.

Did you see something you love in the village? You may just be able to find a replica at the Grant Store. Shop the Kings Landing Collection in the old fashioned general store. Here, you’ll find souvenirs made by Kings Landing artisans, old-fashioned treats and reproductions of some of the favourite village items.

In both retail locations, protective barriers will remain in place and sanitizer will be available to use for both staff and visitors.

Leaving Kings Landing

When you’re ready to leave, please follow signage “To the Present” at the Welcome Centre to exit through the Welcome Centre. We encourage you to help us to continue to improve the Kings Landing experience by leaving us feedback on Facebook, TripAdvisor, Google Reviews or SurveyMonkey. An iPad feedback station is also available in the Welcome Centre.

Conclusion

Kings Landing Corporation is committed to providing a safe environment for staff and visitors. As the province continues to open, we will be vigilant to respond to changes needed in our operations as necessary. We believe that as an open-air museum we can successfully provide an outdoor venue for visitors to walk, get fresh air, and experience New Brunswick history at its best.
