Simply beautiful! Well maintained, the site feels like you are back in time! The structures are all labeled with their use. Quite a nice touch! The site is somewhat big so be prepared for some walking around. The museum is well furnished and well worth the entrance fee. If you love history, love beautiful vistas or want some quiet in...

This is definitely worth a visit. The views are amazing and the fort itself is well preserved. There's a wonderful little museum that has parts of history tucked away in nooks and crannies.

With an on site museum which is both interesting and educational this is a must visit if you are in Trinidad. Have a look at the local scenery around you while you are there as the views are absolutely stunningly beautiful.

This is wonderful scenic place, with a beautiful view of Scarborough and the harbor, this place is very tranquil, one can spend a more that an hour at this site, beautiful manicured lawn, cool tropical breezes and wonderful views make this place a great photo spot.

Our guidebook suggested this place hadn't been maintained but its now renovated with nicely looked after gardens. Informative notice boards on each building & a museum. Free to visit Fort, TT$10 for museum. Not a large site but good for hour or so if going to museum too. Museum covers everything from pre-Columbian to post-colonial. Good view across the bay... More

A must see! The museum is so interesting-Tobago has been in many country's hands and has a diverse culture, as a result. Fort King George is interesting to walk around-do not need a guide! Also, has beautifully landscaped grounds and a beautiful drive to get there!
