Fort Henry National Historical Site

Step back in time and experience 19th-Century military life at Fort Henry. As one of Ontario’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Fort Henry is a hotbed of historic activity. Take a guided tour, fire a rifle, sit in on a class in a Victorian schoolroom, watch a parade of traditional marching music, and stick around in the evening for a dramatic reenactment during the Sunset Ceremony.

Visit Fort Henry throughout the year as it plays host to a number of Kingston’s favourite events like the YGK Craft Beer Fest, Cannonball Crush, Fort Fright and Lumina Borealis. Fort Henry is a can’t-miss stop during your time in Kingston.

After visiting Fort Henry, if the night is still young, bring yourself back to modern Kingston and experience our pubs and nightlife, restaurants and eateries, or try some of Kingston’s local wines and craft brews.
