I don’t know how many times I’ve been here, certainly pre kids, with very young children and now with teenagers. Great to see the kids take something from this - very informative and a good way to spend the morning.

Brimstone Hill Fortress is absolutely worth a visit. The well preserved fort and the exhibitions there offers a great insight into the history of the Caribbean. Very interesting.

A good fortress to vist - has a lot of history associated with it and one gets to know how the British and the French colonized the island in the 1600s and 1700s. Takes about an hour to see the full thing. Worth the visit...More

First I have to say that the road to this site was quite the adventure! We had a rental car and drove through the city which was a white knuckle experience! Honestly there was a lot to take in and you could not drive slowly...More

Brimstone Hill fortress is a lovingly preserved British colonial outpost. Its imposing position atop Brimstone Hill commands incredible views of the ocean and surrounding countryside, and must have been quite a formidable sight for the competing French forces. Brimstone Hill has fantastic interactive displays that...More

If you visit this is a must see historical site. This fortress is 800 feet up in the mountains. I could feel the effects when I walked up the steps. It was worth it because the view from Brimstone Hill is breathtaking.

This was one of my favorite stops in the St. Kitts. This 16th century fort is well preserved. Our trip to the fort entrance was a steep incline via tour bus until reaching the Visitor Center. At the Visitor Center, you will have a opportunity...More

I would either take an excursion or get off the ship and at the end of the pier get a tour or taxi. The sit is far end of island and way up a hill, mountain, so give yourself enough time to get back to the ship. I would... More
