Great to get some history on the island. The changing of the guard was good. Really enjoyed it even in the midst of walking with my tour from the cruise ship.

Another fort with lots of history. We stopped as part of a private tour. Only did a quick visit. There was a lot of people. Two cruise ships were in town so it was busy

If you enjoy history you will want to stop here. Even if you do not appreciate history the views from the fort are great.

We were on a tour of the island and saw this place which is near the Queens Staircase. It costs $1.08 each to enter. It gives you some great views of the island and history of the Fort itself.

Good location close to the highest point in Nassau- the water tower. Pretty small looking fort, easily toured and gives a decent bird’s eye’s view of the town and the docked cruise ships.

We walked from our cruise ship to Queen's Staircase. The Fort is at the top and to the right of the Staircase so why not check it out? We did a self tour. It is a neat piece of history and you have beautiful views...More
