The Red Fort is well worth visiting if in Delhi. Full of character stunning architecture. It was quite busy when we were there. It is quite a long walk from where the car drops you off and collects you.

Most attractions in India are free or cost very little. However for some reason this place is expensive and in my opinion it's best features are outside and can be photographed for free. Inside is lots of shops and an area of special importance but can't really see anything. I was very disappointed and felt ripped off.

It is a huge, impressive, and iconic structure, and a must see when visiting Delhi. You can cover it in an hour. Not much more to say other than what you see is greatly enhanced if you either read about it in advance, or attend with a guide who can describe the history of the structure and events that have...

Great spot to visit with lots of history. Investing in the audio guide is worth it, as it provides great information about the different parts of the fort.

The Red fort has many years for history. Through the Indian culture, and the British residence. Spend about 2 hours, walking guides at the front gate great english and will tour you for 1 hour and the price is cheap. Bicycle rickshaws and TUK TUKs in front. If you take a ride into OLD DEHLI expect a hand out for... More

The red fort in Delhi is an enormous complex. Don't miss it, allow plenty of time and try to go at a time of day when not too hot. Very interesting buildings, beautiful gardens. Tame chipmunks and hundreds of kites. Small museum and very varied architecture. Streets outside are also fascinating

Delhi is like other capital cities where modern living has elbowed most historical sights aside in the rush for development. What is left are pockets of historical interest surrounded by a modern vibrant city . The Red Fort is huge , but its impressive walls are sadly the highlight , inside is not so enthralling , and of the Mughal... More

On a way from Red Fort to Salimgarh Fort there are three British army barracks on your right hand side. Barracks are three story each and are built from brick and stone dressings. When I passed by the first one I saw a guard, but no guard was near the second one. The entrance door was hospitably open. I came... More
