About Fort Margherita

Fort Margherita is a fort on the north bank of the Sarawak River in Kuching. It was build by Rajah Charles Brooke in 1879 and named after his wife, Margaret. It was placed on a knoll facing the Kuching Waterfront and was a defence line against pirates.

Fort Margherita offers good views of Kuching and the Sarawak River. Today it houses the Police Museum which exhibits the history of the police in Sarawak.

Getting there

Take a river ferry, called tambang, across the Sarawak River from the Kuching Waterfront.
