New Westminster

Resting on a hillside overlooking the Fraser River is New Westminster, the oldest incorporated city in British Columbia. Known as "The Royal City," it offers a wide range of attractions and amenities including fine period architecture, parks and recreational facilities, museums, live performance theatres and a public market. The Royal City is also just a short train ride away from Vancouver, and there are no shortages of new experiences to try or places to discover.
