Was an awe inspiring site to know slaves had been them by hand. Worth going to see be wary of sellers at top and bottom of stairs.

When in Nassau we wanted to see some sights instead of just going to the beach. Nice people all around and it was fun exploring town.

It's a "walk through" historical site. No charge. Lots of island vegitation. It's an old escape tunnel carved in the rock in the pirate days. The staircase was carved out of the rock to honor Queen Victoria. One step for each year she lived. Very...More

Definitely a place to see but locating the actual pathway to the stairs was a little challenging. However, the locals and the nearby hospital staff are beyond kind and very helpful to lost travelers. It was very clean and a great place to get some...More

It is slightly less than 2 miles(1.98) and about a 10 minute car ride(depending on traffic of course). If you have a map you "could" walk it in probably 20 or 30 minutes.

There is parking at the top of the stairs. However, our guide gave us a tour of at the bottom and then left us to walk up on our own and picked us up at the top near the fort.

Maybe 15 minute walk....is a bit uphill from the cruise terminal but nothing major. Be prepared to be a bit underwhelmed. It’s really nothing spectacular to be honest.
