What to See and Do

Travel back in time at Kings Landing and see why millions have shared in our stories, hospitality and vibrant history. There is no time like the present to discover the past!

Time Travel

Don’t just imagine what life was like 200 years ago, step back and live it! When you visit our village, you truly step back in time to 19th-century New Brunswick. From feeling the floorboards shake as a giant water-powered saw produces shipbuilding lumber at the Sawmill to catching a whiff of Mrs. Lint’s hearty soup simmering over the crackling fire, you’ll leave having memories from the 1800s — not just having heard tales! Situated on a picturesque bend along the Saint John River, Kings Landing’s village is brimming with activity as costumed characters depicting real people from New Brunswick’s past go about their day-to-day lives.

Eat, Drink, and Be Merry

The King’s Head Inn, our onsite restaurant, is located in the heart of the Village and offers a selection of traditional and modern fare. Dine in the spacious Simeon Jones room or enjoy a drink in the King’s Head Inn garden.  

The Axe & Plough Café offers coffee, ice cream and grab-and-go items (including Mary’s Brown Bread) at the Welcome Centre.  

Learn Something New

With over 90,000 artefacts, Kings Landing has one of the largest collections in Atlantic Canada. The history told here reflects daily life in 19th-century rural New Brunswick through many costumed interpreters and a few educational exhibits. There are lots of exciting things planned for 2024 at Kings Landing, so be sure to check our calendar and subscribe to our emails to stay in the know.

See our friendly farm animals

When Kings Landing is open from early June to mid-October, the village is home to farm animals. These can include horses, cows, pigs, goats, sheep, chickens, roosters, and geese. Our farm team also includes a friendly dog named Finnegan who is trained to work on our farms and interact with guests.

We also offer horse & wagon rides that are free of charge and work on a first-come, first-served basis. All animal-related programming is subject to the health and safety of the animals.

Bring a Piece of History Home

With both the Peddler’s Market and the Grant Store, there are two opportunities to find that special souvenir to remind you of your historical adventure. Both shops feature a selection of one-of-a-kind giftware crafted by Kings Landing artisans, local goods, old fashion candy, branded souvenirs and other unique products such as cast iron cookware.
