Gates Fort sits right on the edge of Town Cut, a channel that was created for ships to enter the St. George Harbor.As you walk into Gates Fort, you will still find two George III guns mounted. As you go to the top of the fort, you will see the great advantage the British soldiers had defending the entrance of the harbor. This is also a great location to watch how the cruise ships navigate through the narrow channel into the harbor. Gates Fort is in St. George’s and a mile south of St. Catherine Fort. It’s located at the end of the Cut Road that goes along the coast line. Whenever we visit St. Catherine’s Fort, we love to take the scenic Barrack Road and walk along to reach the end of Cut Road. Gates fort is a mile east of St. George’s Town and is on bus route #3.
