Fort Hamilton is a short walk from the City of Hamilton. The view is beautiful and so is the fort. Take a walk down in the moat. Interesting place to see.

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 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.

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.

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.
