Fort Charlotte is best enjoyed for it's views of Nassau. Admission to the fort is only $1 per person. Other than some old cannons and a few displays in the tunneled out area under the fort, there's not a lot of historical interest. However, it's more than worth the $1 admission.

Paid $1 for each visitor, but the "tour guide" didn't know much history. Wouldn't waste your time unless you are a big history buff.

Great place to visit if you like history. If you visit in the hot months it get very stuffy in there. It costs a $1 to get in.

Though this fort was never engaged in a battle, it's worth a visit. It was constructed in the late 1700s and named for the wife of King George III. There's a moat, now without water, and a drawbridge. The ramparts provide a great view of the harbor. There are period cannons on their carriages. A stroll through the dungeons below... More

Fort Charlotte is set back from the downtown port area, but its right across the road from the fish fry area. If you are on a cruise ship and made a trip to the fish fry, you should walk over to the Fort. Its only a $1 admission to walk through the interior and go up top. There are some... More

This place is unbelievable. It is unbelievable that there are very few visitors to this site. It is a testimonial to giverment spending gone awry inthe early days. The Fort was well built and it is an amazing site to see.The admission price is very low.
