Fodor's Review

This series of restored waterfront warehouses dates from the days of yore, when trade and war made Halifax prosperous. They were built by such raffish characters as Enos Collins, a privateer, smuggler, and shipper whose vessels defied Napoléon's blockade to bring American supplies to the Duke of Wellington. The buildings have since been taken over by shops, offices, restaurants, and pubs including those in Privateer's Warehouse. Seven of them, all erected between the

late 18th and early 19th century, have been designated as National Historic Sites.
