The entrance to this historic landmark is EC$2.50 and is worth it. From the views to the harbour and the walk through the jail and reading about Grenada's history it's a wonderful experience. Great place to take pics of the capital.

The fort is strategically situated on a prominent point above the harbour so you are guaranteed a great view of the town.
Inside the fort there is limited signage which should be improved but tours are available to learn the rich history. It’s definitely worth a view

So I finally got to visit Fort George while on vacation after hearing stories from my parents about their experiences during the revolution. The charge is $2 per person and the walk up the hill is not and easy one haha, so dress comfortable and have proper walking shoes on. The view from the top of the fort is breathtaking, you get the see the view of the caranage, beaches and the the pretty colorful houses.

If an attraction like this is going to charge an entrance fee to patrons, they should at least clean out the trash in the main areas that people want to see. There was old broken furniture with boxes and trash stuffed in the basketball court area that looks like it has been there rotting for a long time. It would probably take a couple of people a few hours to clean the junk out of there. There isn't much to see to begin with, so I found this very disappointing. The view is nice and there is historical significance to the site, but it needs attention.

Completed by the French in 1710 and taken over by the British in 1763 following the French and Indian War (Seven Years War) fought for control of territory in the New World. It was also the site of the end of the Grenada Revolution in 1983. Fort George offers commanding views of the town, harbor and the surrounding coast. It is a modestly strenuous hike to get up here. It is worth visiting for the views alone. However, I deducted a point as the views are a 5 but the way the facility is managed is a 2. The Fort is getting renovated and most of it wasn't open for touring. Only a couple observation points were accessible. However, this did not stop them from still charging an entrance fee without informing me about the closures. When I politely requested by money back after returning to the entrance, I was rudely disregarded.

Fort George dominates the town and enjoys great views in all directions but. beyond that, its a waste of time as a historic site and visitor attraction.
The fort hasn't been used for many years and most buildings are dilapidated but there is lots of untapped potential to make it a great visitor attraction if they just spent a little time removing modern 'crap' and tidying up the site.
You are given a very brief information leaflet on entry but direction boards and relevant information regarding the fort's place in history would add so much to the experience - would happily pay double the $2 entry for something worthwhile.
In short a wasted opportunity!

Parking on the street close by for free made it easy to visit the fort. We enjoyed walking around and enjoying the view. The cost to enter the fort is $2 USD. We were however disappointed in the fort itself, there was no upkeep and trash everywhere, they did not even remove old doors etc it was just left laying on the side. It seems no one cares about any upkeep.

After shopping in the harbor of St George, I decided to visit Fort George just a few blocks away. After hiking up countless steps and sharply inclined walkways, I made it to the base of the fort. .I then went up several more walkways and reached the pinnacle of Fort George. For a history guy like me it's a neat place...The fort is clean and well maintained. After coming down from the highest ramparts I realized that you could travel up by taxi or a small tour train. Oh well, I needed the exercise any. All in all a fun visit.

My wife and I had a short stop off in St George’s whilst on a TUI cruiser and enjoyed the visit. Didn't take long to get round the Fort, not that much to see in truth. 2 USDs to enter if not part of bigger tour. The lady guide at the fort was charming, very informative and helpful. Really the fort itself is very run down with a view cannons on display. The views from the top were stunning.

Luckily I had read previous reviews about not making a special trip here. So as I was having lunch at Bb's Crabback I walked here afterwards. It is very basic no information or signs I was the only one there. Great views but that's about it.
