... it is insanely boring. The parade ground was lined with people who all then had to get divided into groups for the guided tour. If I had to do it again, I'd skip the ceremony - either go later in the year or later in the day. And actually, I'd suggest the Citadel tour in Halifax which is far more interesting and hands on.

A few years after building the Citadel, after the Patriote Rebellion in 1837-38, the British thought it necessary to reinforce it by building more defensive measures in the "ditch", (if you could call the deep and wide dry moat surrounding the star shaped fort that.)
