Situated in one of the most vibrant cities on the east coast, the Halifax Citadel has much to offer first time and frequent visitors alike. It is a central part of the city, impossible to miss from the harbour and easily accessible by car or foot. First time visitors should plan a minimum of two hours to explore; history buffs can spend the day taking in all that the Halifax Citadel has to offer.
