Halifax, Nova Scotia, is often seen as a gateway to Atlantic Canada. It was the first British town to be founded in Canada, in 1749. The city is home to the second largest natural harbour in the world, and many of its attractions revolve around this, including the beautiful Harbourwalk. The Martello Tower and the Halifax Citadel are other attractions worthy of a visit. Flights to Halifax are available with Air Transat from Gatwick, or with Air Canada via Toronto.
