This is a beautiful, old fort. Plan on spending an hour on a self-guided tour through the ruins. Lots of interesting information. It is surprising how the history of Bermuda is linked to the history of Jamestown, Virginia. Perfect for children as well as adults.

Free entry to self-guide fort that is converted to gardens. Interesting fort with a few cannon and a couple of long tunnels but no exhibits or information. Large moat filled with plants, very few of them labled but well worth a walk. Gardens pretty and...More

First off, this is a free attraction -- always a plus. Although we could see the flag waving above the fort, getting there was a little tough. Walk to the right (east) down Front Street, turn left on King Street and walk up the hill...More

While a good example of a British fort, it is a climb to get there and the entrance is difficult to find. Upon entering the fort, there is very little signage or explanation of the site. We didn't even find a visitor's center. The grounds/flowers...More
