Tour the St. Andrews Blockhouse barracks and storage battery to imagine what life was like “on guard” during the War of 1812. Bring a lunch and enjoy a serene picnic overlooking the dramatic ebb and flow of the world-famous Bay of Fundy’s tides. When the tide is out, you can walk a path across the tidal flats and look out for shorebirds. Heritage interpreters are on hand in summer.

    Dress up in period uniform and experience life in the barracks. You’ll guard St. Andrews harbour from American privateers as the colony is swept up in the War of 1812, pitting the U.S. against Great Britain.
