The setting of Anne of Green Gables is Prince Edward Island, Canada. Anne's extended descriptions of the island - of the flowers, woods, trees, ponds, brooks, meadows - everything! make the setting an integral part of the book.
The most visited place in P.E.I. after Charlottetown (the arrival and departure point for most travellers) is what’s known as Anne’s Land or Green Gables Shore, the north-central shore of the island in and around Cavendish where author Lucy Maud Montgomery spent her childhood and which served as the setting for her popular Anne of Green Gables series of books.
