“Beautiful Side Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

If you can tolerate a little walking the trip to Fort Hamilton is totally worth it. With beautiful bay vistas and gardens galore your camera will be very busy. It is NOT easily accessible: very "hilly" and lots of stair climbing. Can be really warm so bottled water is recommended since there is no shopping on site.

“Great Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012 via mobile

Great views of the city and harbour and best of all it's free. It is a bit of a hike to get to the top of the hill so a scooter would be helpful. Careful with the kids there are some drop offs.

“Nice views”

The fort never fired a shot in anger but it has agreat view and interesting features. Nice greenery. Good when you can't go to the beach.

“Incredible View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

We decided to go up to the Fort. It was a tough walk uphill to get there from the ferry but worth it. The view of the harbor was incredible.

“Beautiful view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

25 minute walk from downtown Hamilton but walking uphill. Free attraction. Just walk in and wander around. Beautiful view of town and harbor. Plan on 20 - 30 minutes to walk and look around the fort.
