My husband and I visited in October 2017. We arrived at lunchtime to find the place empty, went for a walk and came back later. The guide we had was excellent. He lives on-site and speaks very good English. He was able to answer all...More

I visited the fort on my last day in Axim. Upon entering, I couldn't find any tour guide at the entrance so I entered and started touring myself. Which is bad. The place is being inhabited by a family. The sanctity of the place should...More

Needed to be remodeled and fenced to attract the necessary tourist visits and attention. The location close to the Sea is fantastic. I did not get the history behind the building whilst there apart form the terse inscription o the frontage.

Guide was pretty casual and asking for financial support. The tour could be so much more and presented more enthusiastically. The displays were interesting. Learning trip to Elmina (St. George's) might help as their guides are much better.

We had to search around and wait for someone to open the fort but then our guide was great. Similar to the Cape coast castles. If you're in axim, you must see this castle

The Fort which is supposed to be the biggest fort in Ghana seems to be the most abandoned fort in Ghana. The guide to the place wasn't nice as he sounded rude on reception. There was no receipt for monies paid and this will obviously...More

Smaller than the castles at Cape Coast and Elmina, but with a similar tragic story to tell. The fort suffers from being allowed to decay and could do with more TLC. Worth a short visit if in the area, but also walk through the village....More
