“Can't go to the beach?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012

We had a cloudy day when we were visiting BDA and made this part of our itinerary. It's got great views of Hamilton and its an easy walk from downtown.

“Worth the walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

Fort offers lovely views of Hamilton and is worth the work from the Ferry. It added a bit of history to our shopping trip in Hamilton

“What a View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2012

We walked-up to the Fort but you can get a cab. It is an uphill walk but the views are great. You can see the town and the harbour. Is also interesting to see the guns and read about and see the history.

“Not as well maintained as others”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2012

We made a point to visit all of the forts in Bermuda. While it looks like there is a lot of maintenance going on, this one was a bit of a disappointment. Not nearly as well maintained as the others, with trees in some areas obscuring the view.
