The Original Vancouver

Gastown is the historic and cultural heart of Vancouver and is the city’s oldest neighbourhood establishing itself in 1867. Designated a National Historic Site in 2009, you can find block upon block of grand Victorian buildings hold memories of Gastown's reign as Canada's third-largest city and one of the most cosmopolitan. Today, these historic aesthetics prove a glorious backdrop for today's urban lifestyle.

It’s no surprise Gastown as named 4th Most Stylish Neighbourhood in the World in 2012. Gastown is the epicenter of Vancouver’s creative talent and independent businesses in design, culture, food, and fashion. The neighbourhood crackles with energy, with its dynamic streetscape, cutting edge boutiques and design stores, one-of-a-kind galleries, and award winning dining scene make it Canada’s coolest community.

It sets the trends for the future while respecting its unique past. Gastown is the original Vancouver.
