Merge onto Highway 103 West, then get off at Exit 11 (Highway 324.) Turn left on the 324 (Cornwall Rd.) for Lunenburg.

By bus

Trius Tours operates a daily bus service between the Halifax Via Rail station (6040 Almon St.) and Mike's Kwik-Way in Lunenburg.

Get around

There is no public transportation in Lunenburg, but it is small enough to be explored on foot. Trot in Time, located outside the Fisheries Museum, gives tours of the town in horse-drawn buggies from May to October. Lunenburg Town Walking Tours run by local historian, Eric Croft, provide a look at the town's history as you walk through it.
