Fort York National Historic Site

Fort York has Canada’s largest collection of original War of 1812 buildings and is also the site of the Battle of York which took place in 1813. Located in the heart of downtown Toronto, Fort York is open year-round and offers tours, exhibits, period settings, and seasonal demonstrations. During our visit we enjoyed watching students representing the Canadian Fencible Regiment demonstrate military music, drill, musketry and artillery.
