You can't describe Fort George, without first noting the winding uphill ride to get there - that alone is noteworthy. Once atop at Fort George a special and fantastic view await, giving breathtaking views of much of the island of Trinidad. The fort itself and area are well maintained in terms of a historical sense, with cannons and structures still... More

Went up with a car to the lookout and had a amazing view on Port-of-Spain. A must when visiting Trinidad.

Just get into your car, on an evening and go. Trust me, it's worth the experience. The View: You can see for miles and miles from the top of the fort - from the hills of St. Ann's to the Caroni Swamps, the gulf and all the ships that seem to peacefully make their way in and out of the... More

In the past their were security concerns for people visiting this site. This vintage fort is beautiful and the view is breathtaking overlooking the city and ocean. This site appeared to be properly maintained but I have no reference point to compare. This is a must see when visiting Trinidad. I didn't check the washroom facility's sorry

A quaint little fort built in 1804 by the British. It provides a lovely panoramic view of most of the Capital city Port of Spain and surrounding areas including the sea and valleys.

Fort George, Tobago is a must see. You can get there by car and some even venture to walk (although I never have, as it is hot & hilly!) Tobago was fought for approx. 17 times(!), so Forts are of historical significance. The first thing that 'hits' you is the view! As you approach the canons, the well kept grassed... More

The site can be reached by car. It is not too far from the city limits. Very scenic and peaceful. Don't forget the camera.

This is not really the sort of fort UK people would expect. It is more like a house. Has the old jail and some interesting history attached to it. However the best thing is that you can see for miles, several of the smaller islands and apparently to the Venezueluan Coast if it is not misty.
