The Citadel National Historic Site is one of the most important and iconic preservation areas in Canada, and a must-see on any visit to the East Coast — but seeing it like this is an extra-special adventure.

The grounds of the Halifax Citadel remain open for visitation year round; during the Nov. 1-May 6 period visitors are invited to wander the inside of the fort, including the ramparts (closed if snow covered), and can imagine what the fort would have been like back in 1869. The noon gun fires daily.
