If you’re in Kingston, this is a place you can’t miss. It really immerses you into the history of the Fort. (ps: go to the bakery and buy some bread it’s really good and freshly baked)

My wife and I took a trolley ride around the area and we traveled through Fort Henry. The history of the Fort was interesting. Nice change of pace.

This fort was quite huge! Once we entered, the courtyard was filled with stores. Then we entered in the historic park. There were many doors. Some were locked, some were not. The first thing we saw were soldiers marching by the commands of an officer....More

Easy way to spend a few hours visiting the fort, much to,see and loads or armaments and uniforms if your lucky you might catch the guard doing a demo. Huge car park and easy to find, alternatively to the trolley with the k pass.

The ticket only provided inclusion of the fort's enclosure. When we were there the Saturday night light display was included so you could return and witness this.
