Brock's Monument

14184 Niagara River Parkway, Queenston, Ontario, L2E 6T2

The Basics

There are many things to do at Brock’s Monument and Queenston Heights National Historic Site. As well as enjoying the park and the tall monument, you can climb the tower’s 235 steps for spectacular views, tour the field where the Battle of Queenston Heights took place with guides in 19th-century military costume, and visit the small museum that recounts the history of the War of 1812.

If visiting independently, a tour offered by the site provides historical insights. Some guided tours of Niagara Falls and the area include a stop in Queenston to see Brock’s Monument—and typically include a climb to the top—and may include other sights such as Fort George, Niagara-on-the-Lake, and regional wineries.

Fort George National Historic Site

Visitors interested in the history of the Niagara region should combine a visit to Brock’s Monument with the Fort George National Historic Site, just north of the monument. This late–18th-century fort overlooks the Niagara River, with views across to the US. It played an important role in the defense of Canada, especially in the War of 1812.
