Fort Frederick

Top choice fort in St George's

Constructed by the French in 1779, Fort Frederick was soon used – paradoxically – by the British in defense against the French, although it never fired a cannon in anger. It’s the island’s best-preserved fort, and offers striking panoramic views. If you're lucky, the gate to the tunnels will be open – bring a torch as there is no lighting down there. The fort is atop Richmond Hill, 1¼ miles east of St George’s on the road to St Paul’s.
