“Some politics and a picture”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

We arrived at the Government house/Parliament square by foot after walking down Bay Street. It's a nice place to take some pictures and see authentic pink buildings that distinguish Nassau. Other than that, if you don't have a guide, you won't know too much about this place - we did a little bit of reading beforehand and printed some information.

* Maximum time spent - half an hour, good photo spot

“This is the House of Assembly; not Government House”
Reviewed June 13, 2012

Most of the pictures here are of The House of Assembly where government business takes place. There is a statue of Queen Victoria in front of it. There are a couple of pictures in the "visitor pictures" section of another pink house with a statue of a man standing on the steps, that is Government House and the statue is Christopher Columbus. This is where the Governor General resides. It is located on Shirley Street and Blue Hill.

“A must see”
Reviewed March 29, 2012

Its where the present Governor General lives. The grounds are very well maintained and naturally manicured. Hundreds of photo pics. There is a large statue of Christopher Columbus. There are sometimes parties, awards ceremonies and tea parties hosted there. Every 2nd Saturday morning at 11 an there is a Changing of the Guards were the Royal Bahamas Police Force Band performs a small display with Defense Force Officers.
