The Peace Tower is the central portion of the Canadian parliament buildings. And of course, it has gargoyles, slightly below the bottom portion of the clock. At its top, flies the Canadian flag.

The Peace Tower is a focal bell and clock tower sitting at the center of the Canadian parliament building in Ottawa. One can easily spot in when looking at the parliament building. Did not get an opportunity to go to the top of the tower, but will certainly consider doing the same, next time in Ottawa.

The peace tower is offered as a separate tour from the parliament guided tour. If you have plans to do the parliament guided tours, then avoid doing this as a separate tour and avoid going through the security check. At the end of the guided parliament tour, the guide will offer you an opportunity to go up to the tower.

If this is your only tour on parliament , you can start the visit across the street to obtain your free ticket and time slot. The view from the top of the tower is spectacular. We do recommend going on a clear day. There are windows at adult height and below hand rail for both kids and old to get a look out the tower. The elevator ride up will also give you a quick peak at the bells that ring every hour. For the people who are not up to climbing stairs, there are elevators that will take you up.

It's now under restoration for at least 10 years, the lookout, the vintage elevator, etc. will be missed.

This was a horrible experience. Hours of waiting in lines for tickets, then a small elevator created an unbearable wait. We gave up after more than an hour. I'm not sure seeing a panorama of the city from small windows would be worth it. However, since we never made it to the top, you must qualify my review.

This is something you must see in Ottawa. Make sure to line up early to get a free tour ticket at 90 Wellington Street.

Walk all the way up or take the elevator, the peace tower allows you to access for an unique view right on the most historical building in all of Canada. From here you will see a perspective totally full with dreams, imagination, hope and sound of history.

The peace tower's elevator and views were great. The elevator moves out from the wall, which you can see because there's a window. The views at the top all have pictures explaining the various buildings and landmarks seen. The staff were knowledgable and friendly.
