Old fort, great to visit during the sunset or sunrise time. During the day time it's very hot there and crowded. There are only walls, nothing else. However, it's clean and well maintained.

I happened to call the GHF to ask if they have walking tours, and they asked me to email the request and allocated Shiranga who was an excellent English speaking guide. He started at the peer outside the old gate and walked for a little over 2hrs with us, showing us everything worthy of seeing inside the Fort. The Black Fort was being renovated therefore we couldn't go inside. We met him at 9.30am and concluded a little past 11.30am. The GHF does not charge for this tour and we tipped Shiranga for his excellent service.

Huge and very well-preserved fort. We have been to many forts and have never seen so many business and homes in a fort. There are lots of original buildings and an effort has been made to maintain them. Many of the restaurants and shops were closed when we went (post-Covid-19) and of the few that were open, the prices seemed more expensive compared to other places in Sri Lanka. Well worth a visit though.

One of the best place to spend your evening time mostly in weekends. Relaxing mindset with the wind and colonial atmosphere. Sri Lankans love this place surroundings with lovely colonial type restaurants brings us to the old Galle memories..

It's totally an Old Dutch atmosphere... I have been visiting this place since I was small, so the reconstruction work really amazed me. The change is unbelievable and new look which really restored the real Old dutch look has given this place a real pride. With matching architecture, restaurants, pubs and food, this has become a must see place when some one visiting Sri Lanka.
