Lansdowne is a part of Pictou County, on the northern shores of Nova Scotia's mainland. Original settlers to Lansdowne were of Scottish origin, arriving to the area in 1803 from Sutherlandshire. Lansdowne would become the official town name in 1884 by act of legislature, but before that the town was known as New Lairg and Battery Hill. The town name is believed to commemorate a past governor general, the Marquis of Lansdowne. Lansdowne is just 9.1 km (5.7 mi.) southeast of Digby, a popular tourism destination primarily in the summer months.

Lansdowne is home to beautiful scenery, be it the glorious Bay of Fundy, the coastline or the landscape. Explore that very landscape while hiking or biking down trails, or even just take an afternoon walk in the woods. Enjoy fishing for trout, picnicking, relaxing in the sun and more at the Lansdowne Outdoor Recreational Development Association Park, which is a critically acclaimed park for the disabled. As well, art galleries, museums, heritage buildings, pretty architecture, lighthouses, parks and more are just minutes away in the beautiful neighbouring community of Digby.

Lansdowne accommodations include cottages.
