Fort Charlotte, Nassau

3.7
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 »

  • A must see when visiting Nassau. Grab some refreshments before or after at the nearby Cricket Club. Impressive colonial architecture and military history.
  • Highly recommend viewing Fort Charolette rather than Fort Fincastle. The History Society has done an excellent job in providing details about the fort, military operations, history, and tours to provide even more information. The fort has been well kept up. They even have reenactments and fire the canons ocassionally, which we got to see.
  • Very Historical Palce. A must see! It will Amazes you
  • A must see in Nassau , great to visit on a cloudy afternoon , lot's of history .
  • Worth visiting if you are in Nassau town. Admission is only $1.08. Drinks are sold at the entrance.
