Fort Barrington

Those who tackle the brief but steep climb up here can enjoy panoramic views of the harbor, Deep Bay and the wide open sea.

Named for the Admiral who fortified the fort in 1779, safeguarded St. John’s Harbour during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Not only did the fort guard St. John’s Harbour, but it also served as an important signal station to alert forces throughout the island of impending attacks. Fort Barrington is the only fort that saw military action in Antigua.
