Fort York was built by the British in 1793 to protect Toronto, which at that time was known as York, from any possible military attacks from the USA. It was destroyed during the War of 1812 and so had to be rebuilt between 1813 and 1815. Today, Fort York is a National Historic Site which has become a popular tourist attraction.

It is open as a museum and is used to host various events during the year such as the annual Beer Festival. There are guided tours of Fort York during the summer and educational programmes are held during the winter.
