While the fort itself was rather plain, there is a moat garden surrounding the entire fort. It's a great walk and many of the plants are labeled. You can enter different parts of the passageways while walking through the moat. The views of Hamilton and...More

A great bit of history and more extensive than you first think with the long underground tunnels and the tropical jungle in the moat.

We went to the fort for the views. While we were there a demonstration of local dance and cooking was taking place. The views over Hamilton are stunning and well worth the walk up the hill.

The fort had some cool things to look at as well as some really nice views. Worth checking out if you are at the Royal Naval Dockyard.

The structure of the fort is well preserved, but there is little here to tell its history. (For history visit Fort St Catherine). What it offers is excellent views across Hamilton and its harbour. At noon on Mondays the Bermuda Islands Pipe Band offers a...More

This was a great discovery. We just explored this fort with our son for an hour or so and took cool pics. It was a great discovery.

The fort sits on beautifully manicured grounds. It's obvious that there is pride put into keeping these grounds beautiful. Even though this is a fort it's very relaxing if you are searching for someplace to meditate. It overlooks parts of Hamilton and Front Street. I...More
