Take a vehicle up to fort
Mar 2021
We toured this with FRASER Taxi and Tours. I would definitely take motor transport up to the Fort. From the parking lot, a short walk up to the Fort. Great views of the island and a small museum with some artwork that explained by our tour guide Fraser. You only need a short visit to enjoy Fort Charlotte.

Wonderful views from this hill fort guarding THE ISLAND.

The views are spectacular as is the history of this fort views all around from the summit as it sits guarding the island with pictures on one of the walls inside an embrasure showing scenes of yesteryear.

Take a Taxi
Feb 2020
We like walking and were prepared to walk up to the fort. Having been advised not to by the local police sergeant, not even he would walk up there, we aborted our visit. Only advice I can offer then, is if you want to go, take a taxi there and back, to avoid being mugged.

This is one of my favorite spots in the island. If you would like to walk up to the fort, the walk is safe for tourists, though I'd recommend walking back down before it gets dark. It's also safe to go alone and take in the quiet and the sunsets. There is usually a watchkeeper at the tower, feel free to say hello. There's also a tiny history museum. But you really just go for the view and the quiet.

Fabulous views.

The paintings on display in the small building are a depiction of the history of the island. Very interesting location, but a steep walk and if you want to go to the top a fair number of steps. The views are incredible.

Great views

The perfect finish to an island tour, with superb views back over Kingstown and the surrounding area, as well as our cruise ship. The fort has been pretty well maintained, and is free to enter.

Beautiful view from up here!!
Dec 2019
During our private tour with a taxi company around he island, we stopped at Fort Charlotte. We were amazed by the view from top here, and were surprised to find out that there the island's authority still has staff at a hut at the fort to keep track of all the ships/vessels/boats that dock at the port. Highly recommended!!

Worth a visit. Great views

Visited the fort on a tour of the island. The views are great although if you have any mobility issues I would be difficult.
If you are on a cruise this place offers a great view of the cruise terminal.

Wonderful views

This is a nice fort with wonderful views. The guide we had was great, explaining the history. On the road to get there you cross a bridge that is a single lane with steep drop offs on both sides. If you’re afraid of heights just close your eyes!
