My wife and three sons, all teenagers, truly enjoyed ourselves. The history is interesting but reading about it does not give you the true sense of how challenging life was. If you are on the island do yourself a favor and spend a morning.

This is a nice piece of carribean history to visit. It is a steep short walk up to it but views r great and a good bit remains to tour of this old fort.

I don’t consider this a must do thing but it’s something off the beating path to do. It’s especially cool if you’re into history. It has great views of the island from here. Good place a photography too. I did a self guided tour.

The fort was gorgeously upkept and had highly accurate signs on the History of Saint Kitts and the fort. The fort gave amazing views of the entire island

Brilliant decision by the government to preserve this landmark. There is a good, but not overwhelming, amount of information about the life & times of the era. Spectacular view, for spotting incoming forces (of course). Consider the admission price and contribution to preserving the site...More

The drive up alone was great but once you are out and able to walk around, you appreciate the view. And the labor it took to build this place.

We had been to other historic sites and forts in the Caribbean and they were were just about what what we expected - smaller and not very impressive. However, upon taking in Brimstone, we were amazed at the restoration work they have done. Also, the...More
