Flew via Halifax on way from Heathrow to Toronto. As it's a pretty small airport there's not that much to do apart from look at the lobsters in the lobster shop - we couldn't believe it when so many people were boarding planes carrying lobster boxes! There are a few eateries both land and airside which are not wildly overpriced just average food on offer. Tim Horton's provided a decent sandwich. Overall we quite enjoyed the 3 hours we spent there though. If you go up the lift in the main concourse area there's a small viewing platform room which is a calm and relaxing place to be. We watched the few planes that came in and out for 45 minutes before going through security. Everywhere there are plenty of staff to offer help - all dressed in lovely tartan uniforms and without exception totally friendly. There is also free wifi so we took full advantage of that. We did ask one member of staff if we had time to go and see Halifax. She replied in a friendly but blunt way "You'd have to take a bus to get there and there's not really much to see anyway!" It's small but clean efficient and did the job for the few hours' stopover.
