Only for great enthusiasts of castles. Some cannons facing the sea, an empty armory, monument of Francis Light - that's all that you can see at Fort Cornwallis. Visit costs few ringgits and lasts ten minutes. Easily can be skipped from your itinerary for Georgetown.

I have visited the forts at Kochin in India and Galle in Sri Lanka and was very disappointed by this " fort " . Not well conserved or maintained .Not worth the effort .

Ancient walls, few cannons, standing picture exposition with some history, malaysian spices for what Europeans were fighting for and some scraps digged form the terrain ...generally poor place.
walk around is nice but entry .. waste of time despite very low ticket price.

8.5 minutes of my life I won't get back. Much more interesting to read about it on the Internet. Cheap entry fee so thankfully one is left not feeling too ripped-off
