Charles Fort is the largest fort on the island and was originally called Needham’s Fort. It is also part of the Garrison Historic Area.
The fort’s name was changed to Charles Fort in 1660 when King Charles II regained the throne after Charles I King of England was beheaded and Oliver Cromwell took over.
In 1836 the fort was incorporated into the British Military Garrison.
Built onto the fort and attached to the hotel's property, is the Old Engineer's Pier.
