“Grave yard tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

We visited this place at night for a guided grave yard tour. There were about a dozen or so people on the tour and we were all given candle lanterns which added to the atmosphere aswell as giving light. The guide was both charismatic and knowledgeable and told the history of the site through the stories about the people buryied there.

This site has a great view and has been well maintained. Some parts were recently reconstructed and it is very easy to get to.

This fort is in a central location overlooking the Annapolis and Allain Rivers. It is a beautiful setting and well worth a visit.

“Fascinating historical sight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

We had read a little of the history of this site before traveling to Annapolis Royal but were impressed with the huge amount of information about the fort, it's design, origins and changes over time. The tapestry was impressive but we noted there were no black faces even though the information boards discussed the arrival of freed black slaves and others after the American revolution.

The small charge represented excellent value.

“Pretty French fort”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

We could not really tour the fort as it is closed Saturday and Sunday. You are able to walk around outside without any fees. If you want to go inside the building the cost is $4. But you can see a great deal without going inside.
