|Sherbrooke is a city in south-eastern Quebec, Canada, the only major city in the Eastern Townships. Although originally settled in the early 19th century by anglophones, it is today primarily a francophone city with population of 147,427.
Sherbrooke has become known as a major student city. With four major colleges and two universities, its student population is one of its defining features. The city is the site of the Université de Sherbrooke and Bishop's University. Bishop's is the province's only English-language university located outside the island of Montreal.
The city grew considerably on January 1, 2002, by the mergers of the cities of Sherbrooke, Ascot, Bromptonville, Deauville, Fleurimont, Lennoxville, Rock Forest, and Saint-Élie-d'Orford.
Accomodation in Sherbrooke
The most agreeable of the four places to stay in Sherbrooke is Vi's B&B, in the centre of the village. The tiny Riverside Campground is near the sawmill. There's not much choice about where to eat, but fortunately the central Bright House is an excellent restaurant – be sure to try the seafood casserole. The Main Street Café sells competent snacks and pizzas. Learn more about: Sherbrooke Hotels.
