Stop At: Fort Charlotte, West Bay Street, Nassau New Providence Island

rt Charlotte, constructed during the governorship of Lord Dunmore (1787-1796), was named in honor of the wife of King George III. There are actually three forts: Fort Charlotte, the eastern section, Fort Stanley, the middle section, and Fort D’Arcy, the western section.

The building of the forts, out of solid rock, began in 1787 and was completed in 1819. A dry moat surrounds Fort Charlotte and it is spanned by a wooden bridge on the north side. The forts and military installations in New Providence and throughout The Bahamas formed such an insurmountable defense system that potential invaders were discouraged, and, as a result, these forts never fired a gun in battle

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Fort Fincastle, Bennet_s Hill, Nassau New Providence Island

Erected in 1793, Fort Fincastle was named after British captain Lord Dunmore—and his second title, Viscount Fincastle—who had it built to protect Nassau Harbour and watch for encroaching pirates. Since it was located atop Bennet’s Hill, the highest point on New Providence Island, the fort provided fantastic views of Nassau and Paradise Island as well as the eastern approaches to New Providence. Its appearance alone must have been daunting enough to all would-be marauders since its cannons were never fired! Open seven days a week, 8:00am to 4:00pm.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Queen's Staircase, Top of Elizabeth Avenue, off Shirley Street, Nassau New Providence Island

The Queen's Staircase, commonly referred to as the 66 steps, is a major landmark that is located in the Fort Fincastle Historic Complex in Nassau. It was hewn out of solid limestone rock by slaves between 1793 and 1794 and it is said that it provided a direct route from Fort Fincastle to Nassau City. These steps were later named in honour of Queen Victoria, who reigned in Britain for 64 years from 1837 to 1901.

There are only 65 steps visible because the pathway that leads to the steps was paved and the bottom step is buried under the asphalt. Great photo opportunity.

he buildings in Parliament Square were constructed in 1815 by the Loyalists. They are modeled after buildings that are found in New Bern, the old capital of North Carolina.

The Senate meets upstairs in the center building and the building to the left houses the office of the Leader of the Opposition. Queen Victoria's Statue, erected in 1905 from funds donated by the public who held her in high esteem, is in the front of the Senate building.
