  • Had the privilege to visit the great and famous Fort William on 2014. It has everything a city requires. It also has a Church, Gurdwara, Temple inside. Here you can find lush green out field almost everywhere. A wonderful place which will be look like you are in a Mountainous area, not in Calcutta. Cool, Beautiful and Nice.

  • A nice place to visit but restricted due to security reasons. Lots to see inside, museum, artefacts, tunnels etc. There is a club with all amenities and facilities, a golf course inside the fort. Only proper and prior permission with ID is required. It is highly recommend for school children to visit in groups

  • Good place can see very good British architecture and construction. Rare and beautiful historic artifact can be observed and looks beautiful in evening must visit in Kolkata. Near to the main city. You can take a cab or can use public conveyance.

  • Can.t really describe the area. you have to scroll to feel the area. its green lung of kolkata. You may travel by cycling , by car or by horse drawn cart or by simple walking. Saturday is the racing day. if you get time you can peep in one of the oldest racing ground in the world .
