This is not a tourist destination. Its the headquarters of the Eastern Command of the Indian Army.
Unlike the Red Fort in Delhi which is also used by the Army, general entry is not permitted. You can't go in un-escorted. Period. Don't ask why - its a defense establishment.
If you are a guest of a defense personnel (army, navy or air force) you can accompany the personnel info Fort William. Not all areas are super-secret and there are several officers who live inside the complex. But even inside, its best to be with the army personnel and not wander around aimlessly.
Once inside, the full splendor of the British Raj is revealed. You are no longer in the world of civilians but in the regiment of the Raj. Raj-era buildings and customs transport you to another era.
This is a must do if you know an Army officer. If not, you are out of luck :)
