PEI Gateway Village

A must stop on any visit to Prince Edward Island, Gateway Village, is located conveniently at the foot of the dramatic new Confederation Bridge. In one easy visit, you will be introduced to the history and culture of the Island, learn about Islanders' modes of transportation across the Northumberland Strait including the construction of the 13-kilometre mega-bridge and find out why our Island is world renowned.

Enjoy Gateway Village as you begin your tour of the Island or as a final destination before you say goodbye. A unique adventure awaits as you experience the legends of our land, sea and people. Admission is free with plenty of parking for cars, tour buses and motor homes. All facilities are wheelchair accessible and friendly courteous staff will ensure your visit is memorable.

Gateway Village portrays a turn-of-the-century PEI streetscape encompassing an exposition pavilion, food and retail services, liquor store, and visitor information centre. The 29-acre development also includes a three-acre park.

Gateway Village food and retail services promise a unique experience as you savour Island food products and shop for someone special.

At the Gateway Village Visitor Information Centre, you will be offered a personal welcome. Here, visitors can map out their own itinerary for their Island vacation by using interactive kiosks or by speaking with a travel counsellor.
