Description

Meet your guide at Battlebox Visitor Centre, where you will discover the history behind the historical Fort Canning Hill and visit many key sites.

Trace the rise and fall of great empires. Hear stories of rulers who commanded from the hill and the empire-builders who were buried on its slopes. Discover the world-changing story of a humble spice. Visit graves, a colonial fort and re-live one of the most important battles in history.

Stop at the James Brooke Napier Memorial, which stands as the largest monument in the park's Fort Canning Green cemetery. Check out the massive cannons next to the South Battery, which were used to defend the hill.

Wander through the Spice Garden, a near exact replica of an early botanical garden that once stood here. Enjoy the strong aromas of the clove plants and nutmeg trees that line the garden's many walkways.

Venture deep underground into the Battlebox, a former WWII secret underground command centre where the decision to surrender Singapore was made, and gain deeper insight into Singapore’s wartime history. The tour will end at Battlebox Visitor Centre, where your guide will direct you to the nearest train station.

Tour guide amazing, very knowledgeable and easy going, looked after us well. The Battlebox was also amazing, was a privilege to be able to access the bunker and learn about the historical events that took place there. Many thanks to all involved.
