Fort George is located at the top of a hill where you can take a nice panoramic view picture with you as a main character To arrive by walking one has to climb up the hill. Of course, you may hire a taxi, but still have to climb some steps.Once you are inside the Fort is very rundown and the police quarter function inside the Fort, there is not much to explore or see after the pic. Advise: bring along walking very comfortable shoes, because the whole island is hilly

It is now the Police station. We read from our guide book to learn about the fort. It would have been nice to have some posted boards explaining the history. The views were wonderful from the top.

We go there often; the view of the town is incredible, and perfect for photographers. You cannot help but ‘feel’ the fort’s history, both distant and more recent. In 1979 the ‘People's Revolutionary Government of Grenada,’ under the leadership of Maurice Bishop, overthrew Eric Gairy’s ‘Grenada United Labour Party.’ On 19.10.1983 Maurice Bishop was executed at the fort together with seven others, including cabinet ministers and local businessmen. Lined up against a wall facing the courtyard, they were shot. Among them was Bishop’s long term partner, who was allegedly 8 months pregnant with his child. That day many civilians, including children, were tragically killed at the fort. Beside an incongruous basket ball net, today the bullet holes are clearly visible in the wall. Visitors to the fort will be inspired to read more about Grenada’s fascinating history.
