Fort William - Review

Fort William is a brilliant example of the British’s military acumen. Now an Indian military base, Fort William is out of bounds for visitors. However, no one can stop you from gawking at this fantastic piece of architecture from the maidan that surrounds the fort. If you do know someone in the army or the navy, you might just be privy to an escorted tour of this imposing edifice.

The general public is allowed to visit the Fort on weekends and on some selected other days. One can visit the museums and experience stories of great Balia encourage of the Army. If you are related to someone in the army you may even get a chance to visit the library and the Kitchener house. It's a great places to experience history both from the past and in the present.

  • Stayed at Keichner's House in Fort William. 1800s structure is impressive , spread over acres, has spacious rooms and long corridors. The lush greenery is something I would like take along to my city. Sadly the concrete jungle in Northern Indian is taking Nature away from us.

  • Highly secured place. Inside the campus, professionally managed CSD canteen and a small theatre only for entitled.
