Completed by the British in 1710, Fort George served to protect St. George's City from attack. Today, only some portions of the fort is open to the public, with the other part serving as offices for the Royal Grenada Police Force. With the portions that are open to the public, and the fantastic views of the city and harbor, Fort George makes a great trip if exploring the area.

Staying Close

Fort George is located in downtown St. George, meaning those visiting this region of Grenada will have convenient access to the historical site during their time there. With only a small number of accommodations around the region around this historical site, only moderate tourist movement should be predicted.
