The fort had some cool things to look at as well as some really nice views. Worth checking out if you are at the Royal Naval Dockyard.

So you've done the cathedral, Par-la-Ville park and the waterfront but you still have an hour or two in Hamilton to fill? Then head east, my friend, along streets rarely travelled by tourists. But fear not, they are safe! Fort Hamilton overlooks the city and the harbour and, on hot summer days, often has a refreshing breeze. If not, the... More

As a resident here, I think Fort Hamilton is one of the many lovely forts in Bermuda.Many people mention great views, which is true, however, going down into the fort is much better in my opinion (i've seen the ocean too much!) However, I think around 4 in the afternoon they lock the gates. Very nice place!

Saw a fantastic Scottish Bag pipe group at Christmas here. With Scottish dancers from the local school. All free and really friendly. You must visit this place as it's such a small walk out of Hamilton but good to see. I would have enjoyed some more history learning here but there are lots of other sites on the island for... More

The structure of the fort is well preserved, but there is little here to tell its history. (For history visit Fort St Catherine). What it offers is excellent views across Hamilton and its harbour. At noon on Mondays the Bermuda Islands Pipe Band offers a free display during the pipers' lunch hour. For a small group they played extremely well,... More

This was a great discovery. We just explored this fort with our son for an hour or so and took cool pics. It was a great discovery.

The fort sits on beautifully manicured grounds. It's obvious that there is pride put into keeping these grounds beautiful. Even though this is a fort it's very relaxing if you are searching for someplace to meditate. It overlooks parts of Hamilton and Front Street. I recommend a visit to the fort.

If you have transport it's a quick easy place to get to, but if you have to walk there it's a big hill. The views of Hamilton are beautiful.

This is a nice site but do not expect a well-developed tourist attraction. Below are my comments by functional area. Expectations. I prefer to visit sites that are militarily significant and have been restored to some extent. I am very interested in military history, fortifications, architecture and engineering. I researched this site prior to visiting so it was a worthwhile... More
