If you have any interest in history at all you must visit Fort George when in Grenada. Our visit was part of a day tour of the island and at first we weren't too impressed with the view from the bus. But once we were met by our guide, a lovely lady who's name I sadly forget, the day improved... More

As others have said, this is pretty run down & uncared for, which is a great shame given the history of the place. We paid our 2 US$ entrance fee & literally had the fort to ourselves today. It's worth the journey & fee just for the views of St. George's & surrounding areas incl. Grand Anse beach in the... More

The walk up is very steep. The Grenada Police headquarters is in and around the historic fort. The construction and views are well worth the hike. Canons and thick high walls would be difficult to attack from anywhere during the 17th and 18th centuries.

We were excited to see all of the sights of Grenada. I enjoyed the history lesson that came with the tour. There were great photo opportunities to get great pictures of Grenada.

An old police training ground, but also the site of some assinations. The views are beautiful (360). There are touts who try to give you a tour for a fee. The choice is yours. They do seem knowledgable though.

It is a nice experience and takes you back to the historic times but it really is not too different from what you see in all other Caribbean countries.

This used to be the old police training college, along with its terrible infamy as the site of mass murder/assassination. Accessed from delightful steep roads. Views from the ramparts are amazing. This is quite a walk so not great for little ones or those with mobility issues.

Fort George dominates the capital's waterfront towering over the town. As such one of the reasons for visiting here is the magnificent views across of the capital and across to Grand Anse in the distance. These are worth the ratings for this alone. There are wonderful sea breezes up her that help to temper the sun though I would recommend... More

The site itself is not too difficult to get to, just a few winding streets in St George's and up the hill. Once there, the view is amazing--looking out over the natural harbor and also covering the ocean approach to the harbor. From the fort's ramparts you can easily see why the site was chosen as the original harbor defense... More

steeped in history where the former prime minister and some of his cabinet members were assassinated, the view from this high point is breath-taking
