Fort Charlotte, Nassau

(360+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site Tourist Spot
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. Make Fort Charlotte a centerpiece of your Nassau vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Nassau trip itinerary planner.

  • Interesting history. Only $1 + VAT plus a tip for the tour guide. Short walk from the Hilton & the port. Definitely worth the effort to get there.
