I went with my partner to this marketing kill some time during bad weather. We were pleasantly surprised with the variety and quality of what's on offer. The food market is good and there is plenty to feast on. In terms of the souvenirs and...More

There is so much going on here. Fresh vegetables and fruit deli style, bread, and lots of stands to buy lunch. When walking the island there are art galleries and artisans. Lots of kitschy souvenirs too.

Granville Island is a different experience every time you come - visited in 2015, then again in 2017. The atmosphere is similar, but the weather, shops, company, all change your experience. This is somewhere to come with no agenda and you embrace what takes your...More

First off, if you're new to Granville Island, do the Vancouver Foodies Tour. Totally worth the money, and it made us come back a second time later on in our trip. There's a huge variety of food, so much that it's kind of dizzying, beer,...More

My husband and I went here the first Spring we lived here since it's a "must do". It wasn't our favourite - very busy and seems the markets are just a bunch of "stuff" for sale, almost like Mexico. We didn't hang around too long....More

Visited this place twice already but it still never fails me. I really like how relaxed the atmosphere here. If you like to try different cuisines, I recommend you to visit this place. Also try to go to the Public Market!

One of the favoured neighbourhoods for a day out,
Granville Island's packed theatres and art studios,
hobby shops and book stores, restaurants and bars, all
offer a plethora of activities and entertainment
options, leaving no one bored. The highlight of the
area is the Fisherman's Wharf, where the seagulls
overhead and the smell of the sea invigorate its many
visitors, some of who are there to shop the fresh

Not sure of the accommodations at Granville, but it’s a nice place to look around. We stayed downtown (not far from Granville) at the four seasons hotel which gives you close walking access to Gastown, the seawall, Canada... More

I would avoid cars in Granville Island. Much easier and less of a headache taking public transport. Granville Island is not built for cars I think that taking the false creek ferry would be a better option.
