Seventeen Acres of Paradise

ESCAPE from the hectic pace of everyday life with a visit to Annapolis Royal’s beautiful Historic Gardens!

In a beautiful setting overlooking a tidal river valley, the Historic Gardens is a premiere Nova Scotia attraction showcasing gardening methods, designs and materials representing more than four hundred years of local history.

Some highlights:

  • Our Rose Collection boasts hundreds of rose cultivars and thousands of fragrant and colourful blossoms.
  • Our Innovative Garden showcases methods and plant materials suitable for today’s urban garden.
  • Our reconstructed Acadian House is based on the pre-deportation 1671 time period, designed using evidence from local archaeological excavations.

But enough words… we invite you to explore the Historic Gardens through our website at www.historicgardens.com. Then we look forward to welcoming you, in person, to our garden paradise, located in historic Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia.


The Annapolis Royal Historic Gardens has been in operation since 1981. We have a long-standing tradition of quality in our gardens and our service. That extends to our online presence, and in particular to our Web Store. We offer you our very best service, and if ever you feel we can improve we welcome your comments!

All proceeds from the sale of items in the Gardens Shop help support the continued maintenance and development of the Annapolis Royal Historic Gardens.

Thanks so much for visiting.
