Do not miss this place if you are visiting T&T. It's a bit of a small hike up but the effort is totally worth it. A few historic buildings and a view that will leave you breathless. A must visit when in POS.

Breathtakingly!!!! I have been visiting here for over 30 years and it ALWAYS refreshes, relaxes and re-invigorates. Whether overcast and rainy or clear and brilliantly sunny, you will have your breath taken away.

great for an hour visit. I love these old colonial locations. The view up there is breath taking! The road to reach there is quite steep so make sure your car tires are good especially in the rain!

Visited Fort King George for the historical value. The drive up was nerve eventful-lots of curves and a steep climb. The views of the city was awesome.
