Fodor's Review

Because Annapolis Royal flip-flopped between the French and English so many times, the past here is a complicated affair, but the members of the historical association are happy to walk you through it. They've developed a series of high-season strolls led by guides dressed in typical 18th-century fashion. This is an entertaining way to learn more about the historic significance and cultural heritage of the region—and with most of the strolls priced at C$7, they're a bargain. Options include daytime tours of the National Historic District and sites associated with the Acadian Experience, and in July and August there's an Acadian Candlelight tour (C$12.50) on Monday nights. Reservations for tours aren't necessary, but call or check the website to find out when they occur. The wildly popular Candlelight Graveyard Tour (C$7) of Canada's oldest English cemetery (at Fort St Anne) takes place at 9:30 pm several times a week from early June through mid-October. The association has put together a self-guided walk pamphlet for visitors who'd rather wander independently.
