An essential visit of coming to Bermuda. Free entrance to what is a well kept historical fort. Lots to see and the views are fantastic. I would advise kids are supervised, quite a few steep drops.

Lovely quiet place to visit, with views over Hamilton with a good history of the area, a fair walk up the hill but worth it, free entry

About a 15 minute walk from downtown Hamilton is historic Fort Hamilton. We were very surprised to find flower gardens and extremely clean restrooms. The view of Hamilton from the top of the fort is awesome!
