Find Your Red Chair Moment… at the Halifax Citadel!
At the heart of a bustling port city, this national landmark weaves together history and culture to tell an impressive story.
As you make your way up the mighty hill to the fort, take a break in the red chair and enjoy the unparalleled view of the harbour. From up here, it’s not hard to imagine why this fort became a key part in a much broader naval defence complex.
As the echoes of rifle-fire and bagpipes travel down from the Citadel, hear what it was like for the Haligonians who shared their city with hundreds of soldiers over 150 years ago.
So sit back, relax and take a moment to connect with this imposing bastion that has stood guard over Halifax for hundreds of years. No need to worry about losing track of time – you’re right next to the Old Town Clock, which has been making sure Halifax stays on time for well over 200 years!
