Practical Information

In 1888, the view from across the Burrard Inlet enticed wealthy buyers to purchase the undeveloped property, and for a few decades, the area catered to the elite. West End has evolved into an eclectic fusion of architecture and residents. It lies along some of Vancouver's favorite beaches, is very close to both Robson's shopping corridor and Stanley Park, has boutiques and restaurants, and includes the largest gay community in Canada. Historical landmarks, including Barclay Heritage Square and the Roedde House Museum, are often used for movie and television filming locations.
