Easily found using gps, we did not know what to expect. If you go to the bottom of the hill, you can read the information posted and that will explain a lot. This is tastefully done, in an active cemetery, so you may see mourners...More

Took the bus here and missed the stop. It feels like you're in an industrial area and we had to walk quite a bit to catch another bus. That wouldn't have been that big an issue, but there were no washrooms in the cemetery, or...More

Fairview Cemetery is a long walk from Halifax's downtown but it is on a bus route - the excellent tourist information centre will be able to help you with that. If you are walking with a cane you shouldn't have too much... More

There are signs to follow to the Titanic section, easy to find and park. Not sure about the explosion?
Arriving by cruise ship in September. Could someone tell me how far this is from the port? Are there buses that bus people to/from? Thank you in advance.
