Back from our trip to Nova Scotia & PEI, which was worth the detour!

Jump to last reply

Just home after a wonderful trip to NS & PEI. Many thanks fodorites for helping us plan where to go and what to see. We flew from London Gatwick to Halifax with Thomas Cook airlines arranged through Canadian Affair, worth a mention as the airfare was resonably priced and the seats have a 35in. pitch which made for a comforable journey.
Not a good start in Halifax as we were badly let down with our accomodation, so only stayed one night instead of the intended four. But as we had visited Halifax before this was not the disaster it could have been. Glad to say from then on the holiday was great, stayed in Shelburne for three nights at the Millstones B&B loved the museums in the historic district and loved the food at Charlotte Lane restaurant. From there drove to Digby via the South Shore and stayed at the Breakers, again nothing but praise for this B&B, took side trips to Annapolis Royal and a Whale watch from Brier Island, only saw two whales but the trip was worth it.
We had prebooked the ferry over to New Brunswick and stayed the night at St Martins before continuing on to PEI via the Confederation bridge.
