Duke street is one of the highest hills that we have in Halifax.
When you start from Lower Water street and head up Duke you will find on your left hand side one of the more modern buildings in the downtown core. This is the 1801 Building. This is specifically a business building, however directly across the street on the left hand side you will see the Bluenose two restaurant.
The Bluenose II has arguably the best breakfast in Halifax. They have a great selection throughout the day however their breakfast if famous. Halifamous that is.
When you pass through Granville Street you will see on your right hand side one of the oldest pubs in Halifax. The Split Crow Pub.
On your left hand side you will see a giant antique shop. It is well worth dropping in if you are an antiquer.
Once you pass through the intersection of Barrington and Duke you will see on your left hand side the back of city hall and on your left hand side you will see Scotia Square.
Continue up the hill and you will find on your left hand side the Scotiabank Centre, and on your right all of the area is still a part of Scotia Square.
Once you get to the top of the hill on your left hand side you will see Citadel Hill and on your right hand side is the Halifax Regional Police department.
