The fort built from 1784 through 1790 has one of the most colourful historical pasts, from being a battle ground during the French and English’s struggle for control of the island to a mental institution. This 1500 yard fort located adjacent to the smaller but older Fort Frederick on Richmond Hill is the largest on the island and was named after the governor at the time, Governor Edward Matthew. Though accidentally bombed by U.S. forces during the invasion of Grenada in 1983, the Fort and its 18th century bathrooms, army kitchens and blocks of cells remain mostly intact. Feel a sense of wonder and adventure as you walk through the intact tunnel network beneath the fort. You can stand at one end of this captivating structure and you will see a mesmerizing view of the town of St. George; capturing the Melville Street Cruise Port, St. George’s University, the Carenage, and so much more. Guided tours can be provided and the facility can also be utilized for private events through the Ministry of Tourism.
