Village Tours

Our tours run from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm daily (June to Mid-September). To do it properly, you should allow yourself two or three hours to tour the Barbour Living Heritage Village.  Don’t be surprised if one visit isn’t enough.  Most of our guests come back time and time again.  We think that’s great!  We’re always adding something new and don’t want you to miss out.  It’s all so interesting.  There are so many attractions and so many things to do.  Take a look at what we have to offer, plan your visit and come experience where the past meets the present.

Poop Deck Craft Shop

The Poop Deck Craft and Gift Shop located at the Barbour Living Heritage Village, Newtown, is the perfect spot to start and end your Tour of the Village.  It has a wide selection of local crafts such as homemade quilts, knitted goods, Newfoundland pictures and prints, books, locally made jams and perhaps a fresh berry pie from the Olde Shoppe Restaurant.  Oh, and don’t forget to look for the book written by Captain Joe Barbour where he tells his true story about being Forty-Eight Days Adrift.

This is the place to find a special gift for yourself or that perfect gift to take back to your relatives and friends as a memory of your trip to this picturesque part of Newfoundland and Labrador.
