Well preserved / restored old fort on the northern tip of Bermuda, just outside St. George's. Definitely worth the visit to see how the island was protected and fortified during the last few hundred years.

Fort St. Catherine was #1 on our list of things to do in St. George. My boyfriend and I were excited that we finally spotted it in the distance from Tobacco Bay. As we got closer we decided to cross Coot's Cove and swim to the other side to approach the fort. My boyfriend cut his knee on a rock... More

Fort St. Catherine is chock-full of history spanning centuries, and is a great way to learn about the strategic military significance of Bermuda to the British, as well as lesser-known periods including the American Civil War and the two World Wars. You get to see the inner working of the fort as well as the view from up top where... More

Although it wasn't open, we could walk around the outside and see the views. We got dropped off by taxi and then walked back into St George - it's a hike but worth it.

This fort is in nice shape. Looks hardly used. LOL Kidding aside. Go here for a nice stroll and some beautiful views. If you cannot find the place there are lots of locals that will help you.

This museum truly tells the history of Bermuda. We were amazed to see that we were the only people in the museum at our time of visit, as we expected cruiseship crowds and other tourists. The museum charge is $7 - very decent price. There is no guide in the museum (which we really liked as I can't stand boring... More

Of the very large number of forts in Bermuda this must be the one which most clearly explains the development of these forts and how they functioned. Amongst the fascinating and informative exhibits, the underground walk through the magazines, explaining the precautions taken against any sparks, is very interesting. The guns at the fort include some with no relationship to... More

Nice views down the coast but with its not a lot to see when it is closed, which it was for our time in Bermuda. Having an attraction closed on a Saturday between Xmas and New Years would be unthinkable in most warm weather destinations. (It was also closed Xmas, Boxing Day, Saturday and Sunday.). Otherwise, and easy scooter drive... More

Unfortunately, we were unable to enter the fort as it was closed because of hurricane damage. From what we could see and read it would be a great sight to visit.

I have a thing about visiting forts and have done so around the world so I took the opportunity to visit most of the forts in Bermuda on a recent trip. Fort St. Catherine not only has the best location, it is by far the best preserved of all the forts in Bermuda. The entrance fee of $7.00 might seem... More
