Richmond Discovery Shuttle

As a growing tourism community catering to those seeking an authentic and local experience, the city of Richmond offers a unique coastal perspective. Only 25 minutes from downtown Vancouver, this city contains diverse cuisine, enchanting marine history and stunning scenery.  

This summer, Richmond’s tourism efforts will be taken to a new level with the Richmond Discovery Shuttle. Operated by our team at Landsea Tours & Adventures, who are also Richmond’s newest tourism residents, this complimentary shuttle service will visit some of the most popular tourist destinations in the city. To provide some information about where we’ll be stopping, read about the different pick-up locations below.

Lansdowne Skytrain Station

If you’re coming from Vancouver, Lansdowne is a quick and convenient area to begin discovering Richmond. The second largest mall in Richmond, Lansdowne is also the perfect spot for any last minute shopping needs. In addition, it’s a great place to stop if you are hungry since Alexandra Road, or ‘Food Street,’ is only a few blocks away. 

Sheraton Vancouver Airport Hotel

The Sheraton Vancouver Airport Hotel is at the heart of Richmond’s hotel district, making it a prime location for travel to and from your hotel. Don’t forget to ask for recommendations on some of the amazing local cafes, museums and galleries within this area.  

Richmond Olympic Oval

Built for the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, The Richmond Olympic Oval was home to the long track speed skating events. This multi-arena complex is also a museum featuring interactive challenges and highlights from various Olympic Games games as part of their Olympic Experience exhibit.

Steveston Village – Gulf of Georgia Cannery National Historic Site

This Gulf of Georgia Cannery is a popular visitor site and also a National Historic Site of Canada. Here you can learn all about the long history of fishing on the west coast. Featuring a collection of over 7500 artifacts, you’ll be amazed at the incredible story told in this museum.

Located right in Steveston Village, make sure to explore the boardwalk lined with quaint restaurants, cafes and shops featuring fresh seafood and locally made gifts, all by the water’s edge.

Steveston Village – Britannia Shipyards

Visiting the Britannia Shipyards is like travelling back in time. Wander through the various historic buildings and displays to get a glimpse of what life was like in the late 1800s. There is so much to discover amongst the various houses, storefronts and bunkers.
