Around the Island

The Wagmatcook Culture & Heritage Centre is located in the centre of Nova Scotia’s Masterpiece, beautiful Cape Breton Island. Known for our warm hospitality and enchanting surroundings, Cape Breton has been named the #1 island to visit in the continental United States and Canada by Travel and Leisure Magazine.

A charming hour and fifteen-minute drive around the Bras d’Or Lakes brings you to the city of Sydney. The third largest city in Nova Scotia, here you will find living history museums, vibrant shops and restaurants and a lively nightlife scene. Cape Breton is the perfect location to add a family vacation to your conference…enjoy a pre or post conference get-away anchored by one of the Island’s fine resorts, inns or bed & breakfasts.

While here, experience the world famous Cabot Trail, explore the Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Site, take a step back to the 18th century at the Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Site of Canada or experience the Island’s natural beauty at one of our fine beaches, golf courses or hiking trails.
