The tower was enclosed in a fence, thus were not allowed to visit it. They are disassembling the entire structure to rebuild it. They explained each block of stone will be removed, number and then eventually used to rebuild the tower. It should take a...More
Even if you cannot currently go up it, the exhibit and the people help out a lot to explain not just this location but the history of these Towers all over the world. The view is great and it is on the way to the...More
Very interesting surprise for us as we just happened to stumble onto this. There is a short video that is exceptional (has won awards) and a small museum. Do both to get a full understanding of what you are looking at. The actual tower tour...More

Carleton Martello Tower is a very nice place to visit on a Non-foggy day. The views are great. The park staff are very friendly and great with children. There is an excellent video presentation on the history of the tower.

Have you check out the drop off fee for the car from Fredericton? a much better tour is to start in Moncton and do the loop because you can easily get back to Moncton from Halifax for a much better deal for the car and flights. or even do a Halifax loop; as the airport is 30km outside the city easy to drive to NB after you land if you get a reasonable flight (but that means leaving Van real early)
