North Market Wharf is where the United Kingdom Loyalists landed in 1783 after escaping their defeat during the American Revolutionary War. These seven, late-19th century brick buildings alongside Market Square were warehouses when Market Slip was an active part of the city’s port. They are now restaurants, pubs and the convention center. At the end of the wharf are a pair of Saint John Coast Guard Base Lighthouses. The small, octagonal tower seen here was built in 1985 as an ornamentation. This marks the beginning of your waterfront stroll toward Reversing Falls. The one-way distance is about two miles. The initial part of your journey is on Harbour Passage Trail.
