Excellent views of Hamilton and the harbour. Attractive well-kept grounds. Enjoyable experience descending into the "bowels" of the fort. Surprisingly attractive lush sub-tropical gardens in the moat. Tremendous tourist value.

The Fort is nicely maintained with good views of Hamilton. There is a good track around the moat which is a nice walk to explore and this hidden gem is worth the visit.

Right in downtown Hamilton and complete with a jungle moat like no other. As good a Fort St, Catherine. Perfect for a picnic.

This is a fascinating piece of history, very well maintained and easy to walk around in particular the moat with its interesting plants and trees. Also great views from the top, and if my memory serves its free to enter.
