Site tours

For those who know a little about the 1812 period, to those who know a lot, Fort George is an excellent introduction and examination of social history, at Sir Isaac Brock's military headquarters in Upper Canada. The site tour of Fort George is a glimpse into the social history of a garrison that was built to protect the first capital of Upper Canada, as well as the narrow supply route to the Great Lakes west of Lake Ontario.

Within the fort you return to Fort George before the War of 1812. Historic interpreters in period clothing, meet and guide your group through an orientation to the site, the lifestyles of soldiers, officers, families and civilians who inhabited or worked at the Fort. A tour includes an orientation to the War of 1812, the Soldier's barracks, Officer's Quarters, Powder Magazine and a musket demonstration. A Site Tour is an hour in duration.
