About Fort Henry, Kingston

A designated National Historic Site of Canada and recently a UNESCO World Heritage site, Fort Henry is a stunning fort that dates back to 1812, when it was originally built. Presently administered by Parks Canada, the military interpreters conduct presentations and tours of the fort that exhibit British military life. But you could also explore the fort on your own pace. Other activities and demonstrations include historical reenactments of drills and battle tactics, the Garrison Parade, the Victorian School Room, and the Muster Parade, where young visitors are dressed in period uniforms and taught to march by a qualified member of the Guard.

The Sunset Ceremony that is held every Wednesday and Saturday in July and August, is a brilliant show where a full program of historic drill, music and artillery is presented. For some adrenaline and creeps, participate in one of the many ghost walks that are conducted by many tour companies. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Kingston itinerary 2 days.

Fort Henry, Kingston Reviews

  • The history of Fort Henry is very interesting. The guide walked us around the whole Fort explaining each part of the area in details. The kids actually got to wear uniforms and use props to get a feeling of how it was to be a soldier back in the day. The marching band was awesome. They were insync with the soldiers marching around the Fort. Overall the experience was great. The only thing, I won’t suggest is the restaurant they have outside the Fort. If you like bar food with no TLC put into it, that’s great but stay inside the place because out on the patio, bees rule around the tables. It felt like we were at war trying not to get stung 😀

  • Very interesting place to visit. Just knowing that there were so many men that waked the same ground do many years ago. The stores were very nice and affordable. The views from the fort was lovely.

  • Highly recommend if you enjoy history but it is also just a nice place on the lake if you are not. Great views. Nice restaurant overlooking the lake as well. Well run historical site - reenactments, and well maintained fort. Great parking. Very interesting. If you are going by it is worth the stop.

  • The historical site and a must for any traveler of kingston to see something that will forever be apart of the limestone city. very creative crew there with events going on year round.

  • Didn't know that you could host private events here but you can. Contact them to find out how. We had a very nice dinner event there with Queen's university. I believe the catering was brought in from offsite.
