How to Get There

Civic address:
Rainnie Dr, Halifax, NS
Halifax Citadel National Historic Site

By foot:
You’re heading for Citadel Hill, the highest point of downtown Halifax. Look for the city’s famous Old Town Clock, which is located at the base of Citadel Hill (on Brunswick Street). Climb the stairs in front of the Clock and you’ll see the entrance for the Halifax Citadel.

By bus:
Metro Transit has multiple routes that service downtown Halifax. Although no bus routes service the Halifax Citadel directly, many do stop within a short walking distance of the site. For example, a number of bus routes stop by the Grand Parade on Barrington Street (including routes 1, 7, 9, 10, 14, 21, 23, 53, 59, 68, 20, 41, 80, 81). Visit Metro Transit for more information of route schedules and maps.

By car:
There are two vehicle entrances to the Halifax Citadel - on Sackville St. and Rainnie Dr., next to the Halifax Common.


There is an on-site paid parking lot for up to 80 cars located inside the fort’s West Ditch. The rate is $3.15 per visit. The Halifax Citadel’s parking lot also has designated areas for tour buses and recreational vehicles, and visitors with disabilities.
