Fort Nelson is not just about history

We have several paper trails which can be used to support your students during the self-guided visit, please ask our education team to find a trail to best suit your needs.

Self-guided visits could be for a whole day or half a day. If you are staying for a whole day, please talk to us about use of a dedicated lunch space.
