Nice view of the city. We were not able to go inside, it was later in the day so not sure if they were open earlier in the day or not. Would have been nice to see the inside.

We were going to go in, however it wasn't yet open for the season... rats. We explored as much of the outside as we could and it was STILL worth it! If you have a chance to see the tower, I heartily encourage it!

Martello type towers were built as fortifications. This tower wasn't open at the time that we visited but it still had very good views when we climbed to the base of it. The gift shop had a lot of information and there was a volunteer...More

The inside was not open for public due to renovations. A young lady at the reception was very nice and helpful. Amazing place to get good photos.

They have washrooms on location here. There is a parking lot for the busses for the cruise ship people as well as smaller vehicles. You have to pay a fee to walk up and see the tower which has a great view of the harbour....More

We went there when it wasn't open - but even then it was great to see the piece of history in person.

This tower is under reconstruction, so you won't be able to go inside, was told it will take two years. Skip it.

Is it safe to leave car at Bay Ferry terminal parking lot to visit Digby, NS for 3 days? Anyone had any bad consequences? Lady at terminal said to do so would be " at your own rusk". Now I am feeling uncomfortable to leave my car there. Was planning to rent a car at Digby, which is less expensive than putting car on ferry.
