Create an itinerary including Table Rock Welcome Centre
The Table Rock Welcome Centre (also known as Table Rock Centre and formerly as Table Rock House) is a retail and observation complex located in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada at the brink of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls, several hundred feet south of the former rock formation which bears its name. The complex consists of two buildings connected by an indoor pedestrian mall and anchored by "The Grand Hall", a multi-level indoor observation complex, completed in 2008.

The north building, originally constructed in 1926, houses a first-floor retail store and the Welcome Centre, Niagara's Fury, a whitewater simulation, plus the ticket offices for the tunnels Journey Behind the Falls attraction. The upper level contains multiple specialty stores, and an additional outdoor observation plaza. The south building, constructed in 1974, has a first-floor fast food snack bar, additional retail space, and a second-floor, semi-formal restaurant overlooking the Horseshoe Falls and the upper Niagara River.

Owned and operated by the Niagara Parks Commission, Table Rock Centre provides the best direct path from the Horseshoe Falls observation area to the Falls Incline Railway (courtesy of a new bridge constructed in 2008 spanning the Niagara Parkway), which transports passengers to the Fallsview Tourist Area above the Niagara Escarpment.

  • Super clean and a very convenient location. The views of the Falls outside of this facility are amazing. The crowds tended to be voluminous but they keep moving. Nice gift shops also

  • The best spot to see Niagara Falls in close proximity. The wonderful and thundering rush of water. The mist and the joyful tourists. This place is a must visit one. There are shops inside. Cafeteria has great food. You can access the tunnel to the bottom part of the falls through the journey behind the falls.
  • Freeway entrance to be with mighty Niagara Falls. Houses souvenir shops and an restaurant too offering sweeping views of the falls. Not moved around much in the complex and straight headed to outside arena offering a close up view of formation of horseshoe falls. A real time view of both the falls . A must visit place. Enjoy.
  • You’ve heard of it. Now it’s actually right in front you. This magnificent waterfall is truly a work of nature. Free flowing and powerful. Make sure you walk alongside the boarder to see the whole fall. There are some public parking around the this area for $5-$10 per hour.
  • I was totally blown away by this whole experience. I clearly did not expect to see how big and beautiful the whole area was. We walked for about 4 hours and got a different view every step of the walk. The historical aspect of all of the power generation was mind blowing.
  • Amazing views of the falls. If you are trying to come here from the bus station. Go inside the station and buy a 10 dollar 24 hour bud pass. Catch the green line bus and get off here. It’s free to enter. It can it costly depending on what do want to see. Please invite me back so I can really experience Niagara Falls. Truly amazing views.
