We’re willing to bet that one of the first things that comes to mind when you think of PEI is Lucy Maud Montgomery’s beloved character, Anne of Green Gables. She has captured the hearts of readers worldwide, and her red braids and straw hat are an iconic PEI symbol. If you want to immerse yourself in the magical world of Anne, here’s our list of her must-see spots in the province.

Did you know – Culture Trip now does bookable, small-group trips? Pick from authentic, immersive Epic Trips, compact and action-packed Mini Trips and sparkling, expansive Sailing Trips.

Anne of Green Gables – The Musical

Head to the Confederation Centre of the Arts for the stage production of the famous book. You’ll laugh, cry, and completely fall in love with the show, which has been running for 53 seasons straight.

Kensington Train Station

Fans of the Anne of Green Gables movie will love a visit to the Kensington Train Station, which is the station featured in the film. Take some photos and then explore the sweet little community of Kensington.

Avonlea Village

Avonlea Village, Prince Edward Island, Canada

Step back in time with a trip to Avonlea Village. Named after the fictitious town in which Anne lived, Avonlea features replicas of many of the book’s houses and shops. It also holds the original schoolhouse in which Lucy Maud Montgomery taught, the Minister’s residence, and the 1872 Historic Long River Church. It goes without saying that Avonlea Village is very touristy, and you might find more shops and restaurants than anything, but it’s still a worthwhile spot to check out!

The Anne of Green Gables Museum

Anne of Green Gables Museum, Park Corner, Prince Edward Island, Canada

Open May through October, the Anne of Green Gables Museum celebrates the life and work of author Lucy Maud Montgomery. You’ll get to see many of her belongings as well as pieces and places she wrote about, like the Lake of Shining Waters and Anne’s Enchanted Bookcase. They also offer tours, carriage rides, and exhibits.

Green Gables Heritage Place

To really immerse yourself in the world of Anne of Green Gables, you need to make a trip to Green Gables Heritage Place. Here, you’ll discover the original green-gabled farmhouse, which has been carefully restored and opened to the public.

Lucy Maud Montgomery’s Birthplace

Visit the author’s birthplace overlooking New London Harbour, which today holds a number of her personal items including her wedding dress, scrapbooks, and poems.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
