The Kings Landing Historical Settlement is history recreated. The site is a short drive from New Brunswick's capital city, Fredericton. The nearly 300 acre site is populated with "historically and architecturally significant buildings" which were claimed before the 1960s Mactaquac Hydro Dam project would flood the Saint John River Valley and create a headpond up river.

The settlement is a living museum of 19th century New Brunswick and is always busy with a number of community activities. There are special historical events throughout the season which are researched for authenticity such as New Brunswick's first election, 19th century fashion or witness a Pauper auction. Kings Head Inn serves Christmas dinners for groups throughout the Fall season and refreshing lemonade and authentic meal offerings all summer long. Heritage workshops include 19th century trades, open hearth baking & wool processing. There are horse powered wagons which offer up very bumpy and authentic feeling transportation around the site too.

Plan to spend a minimum of four hours to explore all that this world class attraction offers. Kings Landing is open daily from 10 AM to 5 PM from early June until mid October. Because of on-site animals, visitor pets are not permitted on site ... there are local kennels who can care for your pet during your visit.

This indoor amusement park is a favourite spot with kids of all ages! A surprising array of rides for big kids and little kids, a four theatre cinema, restaurants and excellent shopping are attractions for the whole family. This popular spot is well suited for kids birthday celebrations and various groups. Many adults will take a break from the action (and the noise) with a gourmet coffee and browse the on site book store while their more mature kids play a game of mini golf or ride the roller coaster.

The adjoined Ramada Plaza Crystal Palace Hotel (which features a pool) is well suited for a family weekend get away.
