Immersion tours are the best means of diving into the history of Fort Lennox and experiencing the daily lives of soldiers in the 19th century.

On your arrival, adopt a fictional identity of a member of the garrison and go through the Fort’s buildings to discover numerous challenges. On your path, you will encounter people in period dress who will be able to answer your questions and help you discover their daily lives.

You cannot simply be a spectator here – you become totally involved! In this way, you can become familiar with life as it was in the heart of the 24th British regiment and, if you play your cards right as a model soldier and successfully complete your four challenges, you will leave with your daily pay, one British shilling.

In July and August, you can also take advantage of the expertise of our guides on topics as diverse as food, archaeology, military equipment and the officers' way of life.

Enter the fascinating world of soldiers and their families. Characters such as the sergeant, the gunner or the soldier's wife every day offer you a number of activities lasting from 20 to 30 minutes.

  • Guided tour at 10:30 a.m., 2:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.
  • Shooting demonstration at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.

Throughout the season, enjoy the many pleasures offered by the site. Have fun with your children in our family area. Relax and spend a moment in our lounge.
