Grand Bank

Welcome to Grand Bank in Newfoundland & Labrador province !

Grand Bank, is the most famous community on the Heritage Run Scenic Driving Route, and one of the most beautiful communities anywhere along the Atlantic seaboard.

As the first French settlers pronounced it, is a small rural town with a population of 2,580. It is located on the southern tip or « toe » of the Burin Peninsula, 360 km from the province’s capital of St. John’s. Festivals, fossils, lighthouses, and more than 375 years of bountiful history.

As soon as you drive into Grand Bank, you can sense this is a special place – self-assured, neat, and conscious of the important part the town has played in Newfoundland history. It was settled in the 1650s by the French, and was taken over by the English early in the 18th century. The town of Grand Bank is synonymous with the fishery. Out in the unforgiving Atlantic Ocean, the Grand Banks are the richest fishing grounds in the world. 

Along the waterfront and nearby streets are Grand Bank’s architectural wonders. The houses, influenced by the styles of Halifax and Boston, lie close to one another along narrow winding streets.
