Fort King George is located in St James very accessible. There are good signs marking the route, so it's hard to miss the road. The views from the fort are majestic and one can sit for hours just taking in some good conversation, the cool breeze and the sights. The facility is maintained perfectly, there's good parking and picnic benches... More

My visit to Fort King George was very nice the views are spectacular I even saw the ferry coming in, i especially lived how nice and well maintained the grounds are. And most important was the charger my phone had run down using gps and taking photos but there was a solar charger I love it.

Nice place to sit and cool out while reliving what it may have been like to protect the Island from intruders. The views are great. The quaint little building overseeing the huge city, tells of a time past. If you have the time you should check it out.

I had a chance to visit the Museum at Fort George I must say it was a very educational experience i learnt so much about history that i didn't know existed regarding the different forts, history of slavery and the artifacts found in both Trinidad and Tobago

We made a short stop here. Views amazing from this height. Also a short written history of the fort and the design of the building now standing there. The drive up the mountain is an experience in itself Need to be sure footed as ground is very uneven and steps without handrails

This is more for history buffs and people interested in those sorts of things. It's a nice day trip to drive around the island and find all of the historical places. Tobago has many and the drive is actually beautiful should you take it!

The views from the fort is breathtaking! The almost 360 degree views are all amazing, there are no bad angles when looking around so it's almost impossible to take a bad picture.

A nice drive up to the Fort, reviewing history of war days in Tobago, Great views of the sea and surroundings, also a visit to the museum and simply sitting on the bench and take in the atmosphere and cool air. Peaceful surroundings.

This place has great views of the sea and capital, you can see cruise ships coming and going. Also it's a nice place for a picnic plus a historical site.

I live in Trinidad and Tobago, so obviously Tobago is my backyard, so to speak, Tobago is very relaxing and enjoyable. It is the ideal place for weddings and just to get away and find peace at an affordable price. Fort King George is just so exciting. I always try to get away on weekends with friends.
