Great visit and the views were amazing!! First time visiting this Fort and we really enjoyed it. We were ten minutes away which made it perfect for us. The staff was really helpful and the chicken and her baby chicks were a pleasure to see.

Rented cars from the Airport and drove up the Fort. Enjoyed the views and the history surrounding Fort George. Talked to the officer and he was very informative. There was a small gift shop and drinks could be purchased. No cost to get in.

The biggest of the "forts" on the island. Several preserved buildings, cannons, grounds and museum. The view is worth a stop if nothing else. History is well presented with signage. The museum is small, somewhat random but still interesting.

Nice spot to visit if only for the view. However it's also worth a visit to learn about some of Tobagos bloody history. Nicely restored old colonial fort with an interesting museum.
