Fort King George was a British outpost built in 1779 and is today the most completely remaining fortification on Tobago. In addition to the fort itself, there is a park around the fort that makes for a nice walk.


Visitors will be able to explore all that the fort has. With very little in ruins, you will really be able to step back in time and get an idea of the old European conflicts in the Caribbean. In addition, there is a museum located inside the fort that you can check out if you want.
