Welcome to Annapolis Royal

Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia is a beautiful waterfront community nestled in the Annapolis Valley. Originally inhabited by a strong Mi’kmaq community, in 1605 the area became home to some of North America’s earliest European settlers.

The Annapolis Royal area has gained a reputation as a vibrant centre for cultural activity, and over the years it has become a magnet for visual artists, craftspeople, performers and writers.

We’re proud of our many well-preserved heritage buildings that make up one of the loveliest streetscapes in the country. We’re also pleased to be recognized as a community where volunteerism is alive and well.

With an amazing history and an exciting present day, Annapolis Royal is a pleasure to behold for the visitor, a dynamic community with growing opportunity for business investment, and a home second to none for its residents.
