Take a tour of Fort Charlotte, the largest of three forts in Nassau. Colonial governor Lord Dunmore had it constructed in 1789. Named after Queen Charlotte, wife of King George III, the fort never saw a battle. Today, you can explore the fortress walls, underground tunnels, cannons, and dungeons. Frequently, local actors dress up as characters from the time period, act out scenes, or sell handmade baskets and utensils.

  • We've been here before and supported the shops. Now they expect you to pay $5 a person which was way too much when traveling with a family. There is a nice view from up there, but not worth the price....  more »

  • Very interesting place to learn about some of local history. Guides are OK, but more detailed information available on the various displays around the fort. They also do a good live show of marching garrison soldiers.
  • Arrived just before noon and saw the demonstration, which was great. Could use some more plaques/info but all in all was a cool spot to visit.
  • My family and I did the Nassau Native Quest here and had an absolute blast! It was so much fun and we were so happy we chose this one.
  • Well kept fort, it's $5.35 to visit this vast property full of written accounts of history.
  • Great historical perspective on Bahamas. Tour guide Veronique was excellent!
