Things to Do

At the Village

You won't be at a loss for something to see, do, or experience when you visit the Barbour Living Heritage Village in Newtown, Newfoundland. There's so much that you'll want to plan ahead. You can start with a tour of the village or enjoy a delicious meal at the Olde Shoppe Restaurant.

When you consider things to do at the Village, don't forget that we can accommodate weddings, group meetings, seminars, etc. The Waterfront Premises and Neptune II Theatre provides a perfect indoor facility which can accommodate large groups and provides the perfect setting for celebrations or meetings of all kinds. Couple that with the beautiful scenario and, in season, the Village Tour, and you will be guaranteed an enjoyable and successful event.

Inside-Out Tours

We've partnered with another local company, The Homestead Adventures, to offer Inside-Out Tours which includes guided tour of the village and kayaking on the Tickle.


Stay and Pick Packages

In partnership with Homestead Adventures, during berry picking time we offer a package deal which includes a guided hike, boil-up, pick berries with Homestead and then return the The Village for dining and pie-making. You will have your choice of overnight stay in our Tourist Home or you can go Glamping.
