The peace tower is offered as a separate tour from the parliament guided tour. If you have plans to do the parliament guided tours, then avoid doing this as a separate tour and avoid going through the security check. At the end of the guided...More

I have been to parliament building many times but my 1st time to the peace tower. The view is gorgeous at the top. But you'd better be early to get the ticket.

Did it as part of the Parliament House tour. It is an incredible view from up there and well worth doing. Interestingly the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is in the same ower, stop and have a look.

The views are amazing, but the space itself is also really beautiful - the gold ceiling decor is so pretty and unique. So happy we were able to visit before renovations begin.

Do go to the Peace Tower for the view even if you take a tour in French. We had a nice view just before it got foggy with low visibility.

After we completed our tour of the Parliament building we walked up some stairs and waited in the short line up for the elevator to the 20th floor viewing area. Though it is a small area the views are great especially on a nice fall...More

A Truly Canadian Image for all to see and experience. If you wait at the flame on the Centre Lawn you can listen to the bells play at each hour.

Having grown up going to the peace tower it is probably less spectaular to me. I always felt like it was a small version of the British parliament. That said it is a classic Canadian image and you should probably stop by if you are...More

Es muy interesante ver el aspecto multicultural que hay en Canadá. Vimos un representante del parlamento de origen indio y el enorme respeto de los parlamentarios al tratar temas en que discrepaban. Admirable.
