Singapore is among the world’s very few great cities blessed with an equally great, historic waterfront. The Fullerton Heritage Precinct, Singapore’s downtown necklace of heritage gems, stretching from Collyer Quay along Raffles Quay to Shenton Way, captures this jewel within a ritzy twenty-first-century setting. ‘Fullerton’ was the name given to this site from the settlement’s earliest days, with the establishment there of the British colonial government’s great Fort Fullerton in 1829, circled by a battery of defensive cannon (hence the name ‘Battery Road,’ just across from The Fullerton). The Fort was named after Sir Robert Fullerton, Singapore’s British Governor from 1826 to 1830, in which year he left Singapore and died in London. Now a new energy informs this most celebrated of Eastern ports, recreating heritage monuments, presenting new views, vistas and visions.
