While a good example of a British fort, it is a climb to get there and the entrance is difficult to find. Upon entering the fort, there is very little signage or explanation of the site. We didn't even find a visitor's center. The grounds/flowers...More

On the eastern side of City of Hamilton, it is well worth the walk. Fantastically kept floral arrangements and a trove of underground tunnels to explore make this the best fort to explore in Bermuda. A must. Have spent many a happy hour here.

The history of Bermuda involves Forts, Forts, and Forts, as well as the local history of protecting the Royal Navy. Not and "attraction" rather a history tour. Definitely worth seeing.

Excellent views of Hamilton and the harbour. Attractive well-kept grounds. Enjoyable experience descending into the "bowels" of the fort. Surprisingly attractive lush sub-tropical gardens in the moat. Tremendous tourist value.

I disagree with those that say this is a short walk from the centre of Hamilton. I thought it was quite an uphill trek from the Bus station. I visited on Remembrance Sunday and was rewarded with a marvellous view of Hamilton and its wonderful...More

Well maintained and offering great views of Hamilton from the top. Nice to do something other than eat, drink and head to a beach.
