Gain an insight into Kingstown's history with a visit to Fort Charlotte. Unusually, this standard Napoleonic-era fort features gun turrets pointing inward to the island itself--indeed, the British army wasn't concerned with a European naval invasion, but rather the Black Caribs. The oppressed descendents of the island's indigenous cultures and shipwrecked slave escapees had caused havoc on the island when allied with French invading forces late in the 18th century. Ironically, the fort itself was built using slave labor in 1806. Take a guided tour to illuminate your visit with stories of this troubled period. Bring a camera to capture the views of Kingstown's port and waterfront from the hilltop citadel. Put Fort Charlotte into our Kingstown trip itinerary site to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Kingstown.

Great historical site that has been well preserved and generally well maintained. My only issue was that I got conflicting reports concerning drone use there and my hibby ended up not flying his drone. It would be nice if objective rules are posted on the property concerning this.
Great historical landmark right on the outskirts of Kingstown. Free of charge with great photographical views of Kingstown and other areas.
