Great bit of history to visit while in the bahamas. No long lines or wait time any hour of day. The historical autographs on the wall from past soldiers and long ago people are pretty cool. Also overlooks the cricket fields so if they are playing can watch a little of the English game being played.

Larger than Ft. Fincastle, but worth the minimal entrance fee. There is a lot of fort to walk, and it has cool rooms you can walk around in with kids to tire them out. Boys will like the cannons and its a nice photo op with beach view on a sunny day.

Hey if you have kids, especially boys that love forts please bring them@! It's a lot of history here but it is something nice to do. They have old cannons that were never used but they are still there! It's fairly cheap to go. A must do in Nassau.

We walked to the Fort after lunch when we were in port. We did this on our own and not as part of a tour. I would have felt better/safer walking in a group. Walking shoes and water are a must if coming from the port. Very cool history and architecture. Relatively short, if doing this self guided. But the... More

very large, interesting Fort with lots to see, and great photo ops. Had fun walking around, and going into dark rooms. Nice view of Nassau town and the port area.

Fort Charlotte is the best kept secret in the Bahamas. Over the past few years the management at the fort has changed a few times but recently there has been a noticeable shift in their performance. Whenever we have guests that have a short layover in Nassau and are looking for something to do we suggest the Fort. The $1... More

Fort Charlotte was an add-on to a self-guided walking tour my family did in Nassau and was worth the extra effort. At only $1.08 to get in, it was quite the bargain. We did not use a guide but rather walked the fort and read the information signs which were just fine. The views of the water were wonderful. Would... More

I was pleased with the way they actually take you inside the fort rather than like most islands you only go on top no history of living quarters is ever offered. Here they did.

You can wander through on your own and read the very informative displays. Tour guides work for tips.

We took a public bus for $1.50 to town then walked up to the fort. A guy was there to tell the history, but we were very short on time and asked if we could just go on to the top to take pictures. There is a wooden platform they have built up there that you can stand on, and... More
