This was one of the main sights to see in Bermuda and we really enjoyed it. They also had a presentation of Scottish bagpipers and a brief history of the fort. Very enjoyable and relaxed atmosphere on the ocean

It is well worth the walk up to see the engineering which went into this fort and the view over Hamilton.

I was grumbling to my fiance about having to walk out of the way to reach the Fort, but I was so happy we visited. We had the place to ourselves and it is such a gorgeous, unique space. It doesn't take more than 15-20...More
