Vancouver Lookout

Vancouver Lookout is a 360° observation deck that sits on top of Harbour Centre near the downtown waterfront

The Vancouver Lookout observation deck at the top of Harbour Centre, gives visitors a spectacular 360° panoramic view. This observation platform stands 430 feet above the beautiful city .

The great views begin with the ride up the elevator which travels up the outside of the building. It's pretty neat watching the view change as the city seams to drop away beneath your feet.

Another nice thing is you can come and go multiple times during the day on one admission. This means you can enjoy the view during the day and then return later to see it again at sunset or after nighfall.

The view is especially good toward Stanley Park and the North Shore Mountains as well as east toward Burnaby. The views to the south are slightly screened by other tall buildings, but you'll still enjoy superb views.

The Lookout is located just beneath the Top of Vancouver Revolving Restaurant on top of the 28 story Harbour Centre office tower. Access is via a quick ride up the outside wall via a windowed elevator. While this attraction does charge admission, it is a good option for getting a great view of the city, especially if you don't have time to leave the downtown area. The large windows are inclined outwards allowing you to look almost straight down and reducing reflections off the glass.

Other spots in Vancouver providing great views from a high vantage point include Burnaby Mountain and Queen Elizabeth Park. These are both free, however, they are outside the downtown area.
