A must see! The museum is so interesting-Tobago has been in many country's hands and has a diverse culture, as a result. Fort King George is interesting to walk around-do not need a guide! Also, has beautifully landscaped grounds and a beautiful drive to get there!

Fort king is located 5 mins from Scarborough by taxi and about 20 mins walk . It is one of the most breath taking views that over looks the town of Scarborough and the Atlantic ocean.

benchmark of Tobago history. Very well maintained attraction. I drove all the way up there. It offers a magnificent view of the city below. The buildings are in very good shape from the Barracks to Gun powder building and even the Bell (water) tank. There is no entrance fees but only a small fee for the museum. One of the... More

Located atop a hill overlooking Bacolet. Its a climb to get up there. You can ofcourse drive up as well. A handful of buildings exist. There's also a lighthouse and a few canons. It does offer great views onto Bacolet and the ocean.

Visited as part of a cruise ship excursion. Fascinating fort with incredible views over Scarborough. The old barracks now a museum was a fascinating insight into Tobago culture.

Check out the map and follow the signs as it is easy to miss the little side road off the main road. It has recently been completely renovated and is the best preserved colonial fort in Tobago. Like most forts in Tobago... More

The British were not the first settlers in this part of the Western Caribbean, but they were certainly the most persistent and successful, eventually succeeding in not only driving out the French but also introducing sugar cane and other agricultural products, albeit with the help of slaves. Fort King George offers not only stunning coastal, port and city views but... More
