Brock's Monument Tours

Brock's Monument
At 183 feet (56 meters) tall, Brock's Monument in Queenston Heights National Historic Site is the highest of its kind in Canada. It commemorates Major General Sir Isaac Brock, a hero of the War of 1812. In Queenston, a short drive from Niagara Falls and Niagara-on-the-Lake, the national historic site is a fun, informative place to visit while touring the Canadian side of Niagara Falls.

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.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Brock’s Monument is ideal for history buffs.
  • While it’s free to enter the park and see the monument, there is a fee to climb the tower, take a guided tour, or visit the museum.
  • Due to stairs, Brock’s Monument is not accessible to wheelchair users.

How to Get There
Brock’s Monument is in Queenston, Ontario, about 6 miles (10 kilometers) north of Niagara Falls. The best way to get there is either with a private vehicle or on a guided tour. 

When to Get There
Brock’s Monument is open daily from 10am to 5pm mid-May to August; September and October hours are 11am to 4pm Friday and 10am to 5pm on weekends. It is closed from mid-October to April. Summer brings the most visitors to the area, so to avoid crowds visit outside of July and August.

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.
