It’s the star of a new hit musical, home to giant icebergs and humpback whales, AND you can get there in time for lunch: Why Newfoundland is THE hot destination for 2019!

From its candy-coloured houses and thriving cultural scene to the arresting beauty of the surrounding wilderness, the city of St. John’s lies like a vibrant gem waiting to be discovered on the shores of Canada.

St. John’s, North America’s most easterly city, sits above a sheltered harbour on the island of Newfoundland, the last stretch of land before the vastness of the Atlantic.

It’s a place where awe-inspiring icebergs float by and humpback whales frolic in the wild ocean waters.

Brilliantly for British travellers, it is also much closer than you might think. St. John’s is just a four-and-a-half hour flight from London Heathrow – less than half the time it takes to get to Vancouver – so you can hop on a plane and be there in time for a fresh seafood lunch.

Before booking your city break, why not get a taste for the charm and spirit of the region by watching the Tony Award-winning musical Come From Away, which opened to rave reviews at London’s Phoenix Theatre after taking Broadway by storm.

The heart-warming West End hit tells the story of the 38 planes that were diverted to the town of Gander, Newfoundland and Labrador, in the aftermath of 9/11 with 7,000 passengers and crew, including cats and dogs and a pair of chimpanzees.

Despite being ill-equipped to deal with the sudden influx, the selfless locals, marshalled by their mayor, were quick to help.
