Lions Gate Bridge Tours

star-4.5
8 Reviews
Lions Gate Bridge
The impressive Lions Gate Bridge spans the Burrard Inlet, connecting North and West Vancouver with the downtown area. This suspension bridge originally opened in 1938, and is designated as a National Historic Site of Canada. At the bridge’s south end is leafy Stanley Park, another major attraction in Vancouver.
 
The Basics
From Ambleside Park in West Vancouver, the view of Lions Gate Bridge against a backdrop of downtown Vancouver shows its immense scale. The bridge is about a mile (1.5 kilometers) long; its two suspension towers are 365 feet (111 meters) tall, and the bridge deck sits 200 feet (61 meters) above the water. The bridge is most spectacular at night, as the entire structure is covered in lights.
 
The views from the bridge are equally appealing. Strolling from one end to the other, you’ll take in mountains, skyline, and waterway panoramas. The surrounding area is worth exploring, too, whether you’re walking or cycling through Stanley Park, visiting the Vancouver Aquarium, or simply taking in the views. You’ll see Lions Gate Bridge on most Vancouver city tours.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • History buffs and view seekers will enjoy a trip to Lions Gate Bridge.
  • Wear sturdy walking shoes, as the bridge is best enjoyed on foot.
  • Vancouver has a notoriously rainy climate, so bring proper rain gear and warm layers.
 
How to Get There
The best access to the bridge is from Stanley Park, north of downtown Vancouver. If you’re planning to walk across, you’ll find access points at the park’s northern tip. If you’re after a view of the bridge, try the Prospect Point Lookout in Stanley Park.
 
When to Get There
Because the bridge is a major thoroughfare for commuters, it’s best avoided during the morning and evening rush hours. Summer is a great time to visit, for the best chances of clear skies, though summer is also a busy time for tourists.
 
Lions Gate Bridge History
Vancouver officials initially balked at the idea of building this bridge because of the potential negative impact on Stanley Park. Local citizens successfully lobbied in favor, though, and construction started March 31, 1937. The bridge created many needed jobs during the Great Depression. It was opened on May 29, 1939, with a ceremony that was officiated by King George VI and Queen Elizabeth.
