Archaeology museum Pointe-à-Callière is bringing its popular 18th-century market back to Old Montreal this year. The museum says its market occupies the same spot as the one first established by French settlers.
Once again at the Place Royale, craftspeople will be selling their wares and demonstrating colonial skills.
A Bombay spokesperson described the maze as a "large-scale [...] whimsical oasis" with walls that "cloak the discoverable experiences within."
The maze installations are being created by Quebec's Charlie Larouche (Glassware Artist), Jeroen Kleijn (DJ & Olfactory Artist) and Chantal Royer (Botanical Artist) who were inspired by the taste of Bombay Bramble, a new naturally-flavoured raspberry and blackberry gin.
The experience will be completely free, and anyone over the age of 18 can take part.
In addition to a Bombay Bramble sample, guests will leave with a signature Bombay Sapphire Balloon Glass that they can use to stir up fun drinks at home.

Address: 100, rue Bord-de-l'Eau, Tadoussac, QC; 108 de la Cale-Sèche Street, Tadoussac, QC
Reasons to visit: This short, less than one-kilometre route is right next to the Tadoussac wharf and loops around the waterfront. The sunsets and marine animals you'll be able to see make the experience even more unique.
Reasons to visit: Located in the Bellechasse region, this park is full of breathtaking scenery. On-site, you can walk along the 5-kilometre-long trails, walk along a footbridge and see the huge 28-metre-high waterfall.
Address: 10, rue de la Découverte, Quebec City, QC
Reasons to visit: This is one of the most beautiful and little-known places to see the Laurentians. You can go for a nature walk, enjoy the water pools and hike to one of the highest peaks in the region.
Reasons to visit: To get there, follow the Lusk Cave trail from Parent Beach and after about five kilometres you will find the cave. The trails are easy to get to, but you should allow about four hours to get there and back, and you may end up getting soaked.
Reasons to visit: Once at the ski mountain reception, you must follow the Altitude circuit. Once at the top, you will discover a path on stilts on the side of the mountain that overlooks the Eastern Townships and it's quite impressive.
