Various Scenic Pictures of Prince Edward Island

New London, Prince Edward Island

New London is a Canadian rural community located in Queens County. Situated  halfway between Kensington and Cavendish, New London was formerly known as Clifton and previous to that, Graham's Corner.

New London is primarily a farming community with its neatly manicured fields and gently rolling hills providing breathtaking pastoral scenery. In recent decades tourism has played an increasingly important role in the community's economy.

Lucy Maud Montgomery, one of Canada's most famous authors, was born in New London on November 30, 1874. She wrote 23 books, including a short-story collection and a poetry anthology.

Highlighted by rolling farmlands and stunning sea views, the tiny village of New London captures all the magic and charismatic beauty that led L.M. Montgomery to write "Anne of Green Gables", one of the world's favorite fictional novels, published in 1908.

The very birthplace of Montgomery herself, New London is home to a cornucopia of gift shops and antique stores.

A number of bed and breakfasts are located in the area while visitors will be captivated by the sheer beauty of the surrounding landscape.
