Where Is New Westminster?

A narrow slice of city and a suburb of Vancouver, Canada’s New Westminster is enveloped by Burnaby, and located across the Fraser River from Surrey in British Columbia. It is easily accessed from downtown Vancouver by a short SkyTrain ride. Getting around New Westminster is quite a breeze, thanks to five SkyTrain stations scattered throughout town.

What Is New Westminster Known For?

For a brief period, New Westminster enjoyed prominence as the capital of British Columbia from 1858 to 1866, but that importance waned after Victoria became the new capital. Guarding the city is The Tin Soldier, a friendly 30-foot tall soldier statue that stands on the banks of the river in memoriam to the Royal Engineers who built New Westminster. It is listed in the Guiness Book of World Records as the World’s Tallest Soldier. Today, the city mostly functions as a suburb of Vancouver with a few unique cultural offerings.
