The Old Town Clock is located on Citadel Hill in downtown Halifax. It is easily accessible from Brunswick Street. Several bus routes offered by Metro Transit stop in the vicinity of the Old Town Clock, including routes 2, 4 and, 6. Because of its age and historical association, the Old Town Clock is featured in many ghost tours of Halifax, which run from mid-July until late October at 8:30pm. The Halifax Citadel National Historic site is open year-round: from 9am to 5pm in winter, spring and autumn and from 9am to 6pm between July 1 and August 31.
Was a great experience! Paul was extremely knowledgeable guide with a passion for his city. What was also enjoyable was the size of his group at 8 max 10 instead of a bus load size, this made the overall experience more personable. Highly recommend this tour!!!
