Fort York National Historic Site
Canada's largest collection of original War of 1812 buildings and 1813 battle site. Located in the heart of downtown Toronto, Fort York is open year-round and offers tours, exhibits, period settings, and seasonal demonstrations. During the summer months, the site comes alive with the colour and the pageantry of the Fort York Guard. Fort York also provides a wide variety of education programmes for groups of all ages.
