Table Rock Welcome Centre Tours

7 reviews
Your visit to the natural wonder that is Niagara Falls begins at the Table Rock Welcome Centre. Here you’ll learn how to make the most of your time at the falls, plus you can buy tickets for some area attractions if you didn’t book a tour in advance. The complex has viewing platforms, restaurants, shops, and attractions.

The Basics
Located on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls, Table Rock’s viewing platforms offer arguably the best views of the thundering Horseshoe Falls, other than being in a boat beside them. In the center of the entertainment and retail complex is Niagara’s Fury—a multisensory 4-D experience that re-creates the creation of the falls. The entry to Journey Behind the Falls, which takes you underground and literally behind the falls, is here as well.

Most Niagara Falls tours, whether half-day trips from Niagara Falls itself or full-day excursions from Toronto, stop at Table Rock.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Table Rock is an ideal stop for all first-time visitors to Niagara Falls.
  • In addition to the shops and attractions, Table Rock has restrooms, ATMs, and a currency exchange.
  • There is a food court for casual dining, and Elements of the Falls is a fine-dining restaurant with great views.
  • The complex is fully accessible; wheelchair rentals are available at the Welcome Centre in summer.

How to Get There
Table Rock Welcome Centre is next to Horseshoe Falls, on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls. If not arriving with a tour, you can take the shuttle from Clifton Hill or park in the paid lot across the street from the complex.

When to Get There
Businesses at Table Rock are open year-round except for Christmas Day. Peak season at Niagara Falls is summer, particularly July and August, when the falls are at their fullest and the weather is typically lovely—yet the attractions are quite crowded. Consider a visit after 5pm, or in spring or autumn when the throngs are thinner; winter is generally quiet and lovely, though very cold.

The Origins of the Table Rock Name
The original Table Rock was a large, flat rock that jutted out over Horseshoe Falls and was used as a viewing platform until the early 1900s. A series of rock slides chipped away at the rock; the biggest of these saw a man and his carriage swept over the falls in 1850—and he lived to tell about it! In 1935 the remainder of the rock shelf was destroyed over safety concerns.
